Dear Friends of Elmer UMC,
Greetings in Jesus. Thank you for your faithful prayers and financial support for HVMI and my ministry with them. I know there are many places you could put your money, and I appreciate that you wish to partner with me. It is only due to folks like you that I get to share Jesus’ love with people with special needs. May God bless you for your participation with us.
Once a month I help out in a special Bible Club for children with disabilities. Their parents meet in a support group in a different room in the church, and several others and I have a Bible lesson and activities for the kids. Since Jodie and I never had children, I am more uncomfortable in this setting than in other Bible Clubs and studies I work in. In fact, it’s only by the grace of God that I make it through each meeting! This past month one of the kids, Enrique, wanted to sit near me during coloring time. I let him know how well he was doing and he seemed to take my instruction well. He’s about 6 or 7 years old. He and I got along pretty well, for which I praise God. Thankfully there are 2 others leaders that are in their late 20’s who are more experienced working with children. Although I’m out of my comfort zone, God is growing me even at this late stage of my life!
Thanks again for your prayers and support. I know it is because of them that Enrique and others hear of Jesus and His salvation.
Yours in Jesus,
Discipleship Ministries/Assistant Director of Handi*Camp
