>Dirty Joy of Youth Ministry

>In late May we hosted our last monthly rally for the school year…it was cold, yucky…and we still did water games (no one ever said you had to be bright to be in youth ministry)…a grand time was had by all who attended…I had the privilege of bringing the message, and there were two teens who made professions of faith. Here are some photos:

So he’s not a teen…Jacob got to participate in the water balloon toss:

The game got out of control (?) and I watched Harry get wet

Yes, that would be Janelle in the mud flood with buddy Lisa Johnson:

Of course Jacob got involved:

Jane, Jacob, and Jessica (staff member who lives with us – getting married in August) served food to the chilled students:

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
