USA – Harvest Kids, July 23, 2022
Many thanks to Dale, Zoenicole, and Ruby
for coming to share with these young people at Harvest Kids.
We have only one more Harvest Kid meeting here at the Harvest Home in Sedro Woolley.
We will then be meeting every
Saturday at 10 am
the Garden of Eden family ministry
14799 Avon Allen Rd in west Mt. Vernon, Washington
a new season as we leave this place where
Harvest Kids started in July of 2013 nine years ago.
The kids, young and old, crushed all the cans.
Cans that have been donated help the orphans in Africa.
We were blessed to have Dale share some songs off YouTube.
Our sister, Odette, who normally comes and leads our praise time was unable to come.
We sang “Pray for Peace” by Reba McEntire.
This opened up the opportunity to share about “peace”
and the things that take away our peace,
such as anger and impatience,
and the things that give us peace,
such as kindness and prayer.
The kids counted out $170 that had been donated by them
and donations from the strawberries, raspberries, and hazelnuts.
Their total is up to $4,868 toward the $5,800.
Donations are needed for the 6th & 7th-grade classrooms
for the primary school for orphaned and vulnerable children they helped build in Africa last year.
We know they will be faithful to their vision and mission.
We shared a lunch that
Mama Linda made
before she left to take care
of the ongoing garage sale
at the Garden of Eden.
After lunch, we were blessed with another teaching with Zoenicole and the puppets.
The teaching is very creative and interactive
as they learn through
her examples about
how to help someone with anger or self-pity
as Jesus Christ did
and is teaching us to do.
After saying goodbye to the cats, giving hugs to each other,
and picking out a gift from the treasure chest,
we visited the garage sale and petting zoo at the Garden.
The girls picked some strawberries to sell for donations for the school project
and visited the animals with Cheryl.
Joseph helped Caleb with some construction.
They wore out Caleb
so much he had to hang on the inverter to relax.
It has been a blessing to witness the fruit of these young believers
as the land they purchased for farms, clean water projects, and schools
they have helped the Lord provide and
continue to serve the Lord’s work
in these communities ever since they were completed.
