An End to Blah?

So this week has been Vacation Bible School and Youth Week at Avenue. This has been the consuming factor in the LaMotte life. I believe things have gone well. VBS has had around 130 kids, and we’ve had 35 kids each night for Youth Week. Not bad for what we’ve done in the past.

Avenue is a predominately affluent, white church. We have made some inroads towards more integration at our H20 worship gathering, but not alot. But Youth Week, praise God, is different. This year we have been 40% White, 35% black, and 30% latino. The reason I make mention of it is that this is how things should look! It has been awesome getting to know the other students who we don’t normally see…and hopefully that will change.

One of our students pulled me aside last night wanted prayer that God would come in their heart. Praise God! I have been feeling blase about ministry lately, this was really a boost…and not that I did anything…this was God.

So tonight we continue. May the God of all nations be at work in his people.
