Today was the last day of 2008 CEF summer ministry...

Well.... we made it! It has been a long and hard summer although extremely fruitful! God has been SO amazing! We ended the summer with 2 Hispanic children accepting Christ as their personal Savior! How amazing? I'm uploading some pictures to my computer right now, so I will post them a little later!

I just wanted to share a precious moment I had today! A young Hispanic girl was sharing with me how she already knew her verse that we had taught today. She had memorized it during club! Anyway, she asked me what she would get if she went ahead and told it to me seeing that they had already received their prizes for the week! I didn't know what to tell her, but then she suddenly looked at me and asked, "What about a hug??!!"! How precious!! She wasn't interested in candy or any type of prize. All she wanted was love.... Let me tell you, I hugged that girl and did NOT want to let go!!!! Tears filled my eyes as I saw how little love she was shown in everyday life! So... give someone a hug!! Show them the love of your Lord! You may be the only one that shares that love with them...

That is really sweet! One thing I love about CEF is meeting all kinds of different kids. It's a really cool experience. :)
