I love these kids.

I know I said the next post would be about the class I just finished taking in seminary, but I had these pics and just wanted to share a little about these awesome kids.
I've talked about how I teach english at a Sunday school type meeting on Saturday mornings, well we have been meeting again this new year and I leave every meeting tired but so thankful! All 6 kids have been coming these past Saturdays (which is rare to have all 6) and I have just grown closer and closer to each of them. They all have their own personalities and quirks that always seem to make me laugh.
We usually start by praying with the kids and this past Saturday we had a prayer in Russian, Romanian, and English. Every time that happens it just blows me away because I know that God understands every single word! I shared with the kids right after how cool I thought this was and they agreed. One boy Sasha even went on to say how God is all-powerful and all knowing, that of course He understands all of us, even when we're all talking at once. I wish I had this kinds of wisdom at age 12!
After the meeting from 10-12 we have the kids club at the church at 2 and they're always there and yesterday Sasha who usually runs the meetings let the kids be in charge. Which I wasn't so sure about, but they did great! I see God changing every single one their lives week by week and it just brings me joy.
Here are some pics of these cool kids, and I ask that they would be in your prayers: Sasha, Victor, Vaunya, Katie, Anya, and Susha

Much love and blessings to you all,

    It's a blessing to read and SEE your heart for these kids and for people in general. Girl, God is going to do great things in you, through you, and for you. We serve an awesome God who has redeemed us for His glory!
