Hot Dogs anyone?

Yesterday, we had a day of missions. Second Chance Grace Ministries, along with our church - The Pursuit and other organizations gathered together to minister to 1,400 migrant workers and their families in Caldwell, Idaho. There were several bands playing including ours and people sharing their testimonies. It was an awesome time of serving the needy in our area. No need to go away for a short term missions trips to Mexico, when there was an opportunity right there.

We had a good time setting up the event area, preparing and serving hotdogs and hamburgers, playing with the kids, and talking to the people. There was face painting, fake tatoo tables, inflatable slides and bouncing play structures for the kids. So many of the people were very polite and humble. It was great seeing their smiles of appreciation for a group of people trying to show them that they matter. At about 4 p.m., my husband and I decided to leave, but just before we went, one of the pastors announced that already two people had made decisions for Christ. It was a great Sunday!
