My church has a group that goes once a month or so and I thought it would be good to involve the kids in something family oriented and learn to give back a bit. Wow- we were way off base. From the minute we walked in the building until we left 3 and1/2 hours later....amazing. We worked, took the global tour since it was our first time there and enjoyed being side by side other kids actually doing something beneficial for someone else. But it wasn't until we got home and I was sitting with the kids at prayer time that it become clear exactly what the day had been about to them. My son says- Mom, I can't get those pictures of kids out of my head. Are there really that many people out there that have to live like that? I told him unfortunately, yes. My daughter then pipes up, well, then we need to do more about it! FYI- my kids are 9 and 11. I was floored. M25M had given more to us than we could ever give to them. ANd if that's what we get out of it, what can it possibly mean to the children and families that have nothing when they see that truck pull up with all those supplies? We are committed for life to M25M and anywhere else that God leads us! Thank you for the eye opening experience for a family that has had a very small reminder in a very big way of just how blessed we are and how we need to share that! Our morning at M25M opened the eyes of adults and children alike and in an amazing way!
