The Doctrinal Exam

We had representatives from different churches show up to support us in our exam.  It was wonderful to see the place filled and to have lots of friends present.

And the FOOD!

One of the ladies in the church took on the chore of making handmade “tamales” for our event.  She started early in the morning with everything ready on time for our guests to enjoy not only one or two, but many tamales.

Signing Up

The youth worked together to create some decorative posters to cover the windows in our hall for the doctrinal exam.  They did a great job in being creative.  And all this in just an afternoon.

Prayer – Works

Baptismal certificates were handed out on Sunday celebrating our newest members in the congregation.  We were missing one of the youth, but the congregation prayed for the lives of these men trusting that God would use them and grow them.  We’re stoked!  And they are serving!

Mom’s Day

During our service, the kids gave the moms gift bags with a little something for them.  The men got involved scooping out ice cream with a cookie on top after the service and handing them out to the moms and then the rest.  It was a great time to socialize and snack.  Congrats moms for being so great!

Serenading the Moms

After the youth meeting and etc., we took the young people out to visit the homes of the moms in our congregation.  They went with the intention of singing to the moms, giving them a flower as a gift and then praying for each one.  I had a list of about 25 to visit, but we only managed to sing to our regulars, which were about 15.  Next year we will have to form two teams so that we can finish earlier and sing to all of them.

A Long Youth Meeting

We spent long hours with youth this weekend.  They arrived for their normal Bible study and afterwards we spent time putting together a gift for the moms.  After that we ate hot dogs and played some video games.  We started at 4 p.m. and didn’t end until about 12:30 a.m.
