Childrens Crusade in Čakovec

Well our annual Children’s Crusade is behind us and I have to breathe a sigh of relief. I painted clouds, wrapped boxes, prepared face paints, sign-up lists, name tags, verses for the wall, 2 huge Texas cakes, was up at 5 to prepare for the day and then ran my bus route as Mimi the Clown. Talk about a full day. We had a ball; we were a little down for this sort of day but still had a wonderful time with more than 50 there to hear the Gospel.

Our theme this year was Božji dar je život vječni u Kristu Isusu or for you non-Croatia-reading folks: God's gift is eternal life in Christ Jesus.

When we have these kids day we do our best to keep the Gospel just the way God intended it to be, simple and strait forward. Why do we humans have to complicate everything? We take the simplest and clearest message in the world and add to it and take away until half the world is unsure what God's true message is. Wow are we humans ever flawed!

So anyhow, I forgot, after the services we had lunch on the grounds, well not on the GROUND but on the church property :0) you knew that didn't you??? So we had cowboy beans, hot dogs literally translated HOT DOG with four legs, yea it makes for a laugh, and all the trimmings. It was delish and guess what I did, I ate!!! Okay I have confessed and I feel better. :0)

We had many profess Christ as Savior on Sunday and we're so glad we went to the trouble to doing all the decorating and cooking, you know one soul would be worth our working all day every day for the rest of our lives, they are that important to God!

Well as with all big days, I’m glad the clown costume is in the washer, the horses are gone, all the confetti is picked up and a few more names line the pages of that big book in heaven.

Oh yea I'll post some pics as soon as I figure out who 5-fingered my digital camera!!!!! :0)
Thanks for reading gals!

  2. I'm so glad you had a successful day in the Lord. I know the children had a great time.

    And uh, am I reading this correctly...are you confessing that you ate a hot dog, or a dog? LOL

  3. Actually Kristi, neither. I didn't eat any hotdogs, but I filled up on cowboy beans and Texas cake. :0)

  5. You said, "We take the simplest and clearest message in the world and add to it and take away until half the world is unsure what God's true message is."

    Oh....that is so, so true! My husband and I were were at a children's night at our church a few months, and the children's evangelist muddied up the salvation story so badly, that even I was confused as to what he was trying to get across. :(
