We're excited because this Saturday will be Word of Life's first annual Family Picnic here in Nicaragua. The purpose of the Family Picnic is to share the gospel with those who don't know Christ. Bible Club youth and church members from the 8 churches we are currently working with, invite their family, friends, and neighbors. The day is full of activites and fun competitions between the different churches. Each church brings a representative banner and wears a specific color to idenify themselves and the winning church brings home a trophy. There are competitions for babies up to the elderly. There will be a winner for the person who has the longest nose, the biggest head, and for the oldest and youngest person present. Midway through the activity we stop and share the gospel whole group and then we also have several leaders who evangelize one on one as well. :) It will be a very fun day and we are trusting that God will touch many lives through the sharing of His Word.
