Not too old

24 06 2017

Thursday we bought flip-flops for 22 street boys and girls. We also gave them a snack, *cold* water (a treat), a few practical small items and a gospel tract. Afterwards we hung-out with them at a busy intersection. Many passers-by were curious about what we were doing and some asked why we’re doing it. When it was over the kids went “home” to a dumpster area for several eateries. The funds for the flip-flops came from an elementary class in Arizona. We’ll do this again Tuesday for other kids.

I know I’m getting too old for some things but there’s one I’m not. That’s ministering to street kids. After 31 years doing this in the Philippines I have a lot yet to learn and feel like I’m just getting started. Let’s not overlook those whom God considers important. Jesus said “Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. See that you do not look down on one of these little ones.” (Matthew 18:5,10)
