Ministry Happenings!

After a great Awards Banquet night, YFCHL is over for another season. The four guys I have driven over the past few years all got awards. Pictured below are from left to right Adrian for best goalie, Eldon for most goals and most points (both records for the league), Triston for Most Improved and Tristen for the Leadership award. I must admit I was proud of their accomplishments. They are a great group of young men. It has been a great experience for me to get to know these guys and be a part of their lives. I will be keeping in touch with them this summer.

Adrian had a birthday in April and Eldon had his in May. Also, another guy I have been driving home, Alan had a birthday in May. That meant 2 more birthday parties with (lots of) food and fun mini-golfing, playing in the batting cages and two even hit the climbing wall.

The other major highlight in June was the Drop-In Family Community BBQ at Carpenter’s Church on June 7th . What a night! We had bouncy items and a climbing wall from the Farm Youth Camp plus the Mobile Youth Centre was there. We fed over 200 people and got to know parents, more kids and people from the community. A generous gift from Elim Church covered the cost of food and incidentals needed for the night. A big thank you goes out to Elim and to the Carpenter’s Church. Our partnership with Carpenter’s on our Drop-In/Bible Talk has been amazing. 

Disorganized Sports wound down at Howard Coad School with the last one at Mayfair Community School scheduled for June 28th . The Drop-In/Bible Talk will be going all summer with a slight change in schedule. 

June 22nd is the date for the Grade 8 Farewell at Mayfair Community School. I am planning to attend. There are a few kids in our programs moving on to high school. Please pray for them as they start new chapters in their lives this fall.
