While I Was Away!

Monday, August 03, 2009

I had to take some time away from SparkPeople. I’ve been on the road with our Mime and Flag Ministry. Our young adults had an opportunity to participate in the Have-A –Heart Project 2009 which is a competition of talent offered by the Woman’s Baptist Home and Foreign Missionary Convention. IT was held in Winston-Salem North Carolina. I am on a staff of 3 that manages, directs and support these young adults. We have spent the last 3 weeks preparing for the competition. I am proud to say that we were the 1st place winners and I am so very proud of them and the accomplishment made. Below is a picture of the photo I took of them. They are so precious; the young lady on the second row from the bottom on the center is my daughter: To God be the Glory.

    Wonderful. :-) Thanks for sharing this blog post with me, and congratulations on your win. It's so rewarding to work with young people and see a difference in their lives and learn from their stories and their perspective on the world!

    Welcome back! What an interesting activity you and your daughter are involved in. Back in the day, I was involved in color guard - you know, the flags and rifles that perform with marching bands? We also did indoor competitions in gymnasiums. This group looks a little like that with the twist of the mime. You said it's a ministry, so I assume the performances spread the word of our Lord. Can you tell me more about the activity?

    Congrats on the win and yes, I missed you too. You'll get back on track in no time, I'm sure of it.

    Boy this group looks like the group I saw in Boise, ID this weekend. Did they attend and preform at the Soul Food Festival on Saturday by any chance. If so they were wonderful - it was an uplifting experience.

    What an interesting ministry! American Sign Language is about as exotic as it gets in my neck of the woods! And it is particularly wonderful that you and your daughter can share these expreiences. Great job and welcome home.

    Welcome back Julynn! And congrats on the wonderful successes that the youth group had at their competition. I had a wedding I travelled to a couple of weeks ago, where it was hard to stick to my plan, and I am here to say it didn't take me that long to get back on track! And you have such strength, you will be back on track in no time. Just a bump, not a road block. SO glad you're back! Have a wonderful day!

    I missed you! Was getting ready to send out the Spark search party! Congratulations to the team and to you for your support of their ministry!

    Now it's going to be my turn soon to go AWOL. I leave for the States on Thursday. Have been having a pretty productive day so far and am going for a run as soon as I post a few messages and change into my joggers.

    What a great opportunity for these young people to use their talents to minister to others. Isn't God good to us - he makes us all so capable in so many ways.....
