News of a kidney match came to our corps officer late last year. This was welcomed news, after a long and concerning wait. Captain Dale would have surgery soon after Christmas, and he'd be out for a few months.
As the Temple House Community considered how we could support our officers during a stressful time, we thought leading the Wednesday night youth program might be a good place to start. So, we assembled -- all hands on deck, we need you every Wednesday from February to the end of May!
Last week we celebrated the conclusion of youth night with a "Hello Summer Party." We asked our young people to bring the whole family for an evening of fun and fellowship. There was a BBQ, carnival games, oodles of prizes, sno-cones, cotton candy, and endless giggles.
We've had a great time getting to know our young people. They're a group of beautiful, lively, sometimes naughty individuals who come to us with hopes and hurts. We love them a whole lot.
