In November, our TeamKIDs spent a lot of time learning about a team of missionaries who shared the Gospel with the people in Indonesia. During another meeting, our college student coach Emily Butterworth shared her mission trip to a school in the Dominican Republic. It was a fascinating story of how God was in all the planning that led her there. The kids were amazing by Emily’s journey and asked so many thoughtful questions. They also learned that Missionaries can be just anyone who shares God’s love and
message with others.
As we enter this season of anticipation and celebration of Christ’s birth, the TeamKIDs will learn about how we respond to God’s love and plan for us with the behavior choices we make. The choice to be kind and help others is so easy to practice this season because the innate feelings of goodness and kindness that come from doing for others is awesome and powerful.
Our wish for you this Christmas season is that you experience it as children do, with a sense of awe, wonder, and excitement, but finding moments of peace with your family as well. Have a blessed Christmas!
