We led weeklong Backyard Bible Clubs at a church member’s house that is close to a popular apartment complex and were kind of disappointed when only one family came.
However, God showed that he is in control. All three adults in that family accepted Christ. They have opened their home for an adult Bible study, and now we can bring the Backyard Bible Club right to the kids.
We have done two clubs so far and have had several kids come to Christ. It is amazing to see the joy on their faces when they realize that we would come just to spend time with them. God has shown me that his plan is always better than ours, and that if we trust him, amazing things are possible.
