BBC is wrapping up this week just in time for Rise Up Summer Adventure to begin! It has been a great year! As the year has been drawing to a close, more and more kids have been trickling on in leaving the Agape BBC volunteers with more than their hands full!
Jump rope competitions, painting pictures, germinating seeds, making scarecrows for the Community Garden, tug of war, pictionary, basketball, baseball, and musical chairs are just to name a few of the activities that the kids have been apart of during BBC. We are staying busy, active, and having lots of fun!
Throughout the year we’ve seen the kids have countless attitude improvements. Many times kids have chosen to apologize to each other rather than raise a fist. We have got to see kids advance their basic fundamental skills, reading skills, writing skills, and math skills! Kids have even been getting excited about doing homework because they believe in themselves and know they can do it! Some of the boys anxiously ask for math and grammar worksheets to do when they are sent home from school without any homework. How cool is that? They are actively engaging in the bible lesson each day, bringing thoughtful questions up afterwards. Questions sometimes Sean Stewart even has a hard time answering! It has been such an encouragement and a blessing to be a part of the work God is doing with these kids.
Above all we get to see the kids full of joy and laughter. Being a part of these kids’ stories has not only transformed their lives, but it’s transformed ours too. God is doing some cool things. We feel nothing but blessed beyond measure to be the vessels that God works through in this ministry. We look forward to Rise Up Summer Adventure, and all that God has in store with that this Summer!
