Tell the Kids, and the Parents Follow

This is Reagan Elementary, another school making a difference
in their community!  They collected over 248 pounds of food to
feed the hungry and homeless this Holiday Season!

     I had a last minute speaking engagement at a third grader class yesterday, and what a blessing it was!
     They are collecting diapers for the 94.1 Diaper Drive this weekend, and are having a competition between classrooms.  They were so excited about their drive that they couldn’t tell me enough about things they and their families have done for those in need.  I also was asked a million questions about everything at Open Door Mission.
     The teacher told me that the week before she had invited her kids to ask their parents to bring them to volunteer with her that Saturday.  Much to her surprise, she had six kids and their parents come!  Tell the kids and the parents will follow!
     If only all adults could have their enthusiasm!!  I do believe God speaks volumes through the innocence of children.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.  –Matthew 19:14
