Out of the Mouths of Babes

Hey there everyone! It's a balmy day in England (rainy) and we've just reached our first-week anniversary of our trip! We've been in about 5 different schools, done youth group, church services, kid's programs, and a whole lotta eating!

Straight to the funny story of the week:

Saturday morning we were handling the children's program at the church for kids between the ages of 4-11 years. After presenting a short funny drama about how gaining money and other stuff really can't give you true happiness, Jana stood to give a short speak about the skit. She asked the children, "What is something that you really, really want?" To which a sea of small voices responded with their various desires: "A barbie"; "A dog"; "Candy" and so on. Then Jana asked, "Well, kids, do you know what I really want?" Without missing a beat a small boy emerged from the audience and called out, "A boyfriend!"

I missed her point after that.

We leave Walsall on Monday and head to Litchfield for a week. Please pray for us as we are trying to buy a small 9-seater van for this trip and the new LifeForce Base. We are sorting things out with insurance (woo hoo).

I will write again as soon as I can. Until then, God bless you all and take care!

Sincerely,
~Alycia DeLong
