...and good times were had by all

By his strange and wonderful providence, God has given me the opportunity to develop and lead a summer sports program for youth in the Rexdale area. He always brings you places that you would never expect to be. Anyhow, one of the great things about this ministry is that it is as grassroots as you could possibly get. We have no official church, community, or school affilation which means that I can blatantly preach Christ as much as I want. Cool. We aren't even renting a gym facility. Basically, my partner and I show up at the outdoor court and invite kids to come to our program. They came, what a miracle. An even greater miracle is that, when the time came, they all willingly quit playing ball and sat on some bleachers so we could open some Bibles together.

Comment of the Day

After we were done our discussion on "What the Bible says about itself" a young (17) man approached me and after kissing his teeth and nudging me on the shoulder said,

"sexy speech yo."

How do you answer that? I smiled nodded and walked away.

Oh, this cracks me up. Some of the kids I work with tend to ask, "Are we free yet?!" Maybe I should sass them sometime and say they're only truly free if they have Christ or something along those lines.
