I cannot express my thankfulness for the support for the neighborhood ministry around the Lady Bugg House. Playing outside with the kids has definitely been a highlight of the summer for me. The kids often gather around this house – it is a safe place, and they know that because of the monthly kids clubs. Recently, I was playing outside with a couple of sweet (and sassy) neighbor girls. We were doing a puzzle together, and they started singing a song from the radio. The Lord put a children’s Christian song in my head, and I began to teach it to them (with the actions!). It was so neat to hear them singing truths about the Lord, and then asking more about what that meant. A couple days later, I saw these girls again, and they immediately did a couple of the actions and shouted, “My God is so BIG, so strong and so mighty – there’s nothing my God cannot do!” All I could do was laugh and join in with a joy-filled “Amen!”
Your support of this ministry enables us to have intentional conversations with neighbors and continue “making disciples” throughout Wichita. Thank you! If you would like to be more involved in children’s outreach around the house, please contact us.
