February is one of our favorite months in Youth Group.
We get to spend real time serving and visiting our widows.
James 1:27 says that pure and undefiled religion is to visit the widows and orphans in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained from the world. There are a lot of things we wish we could teach our teens before they graduate. This is one of those things: the value of serving and visiting our widows.
Although the weather was bad on Friday night and Saturday, we had a good group of teens come. On Friday they decorated cookies, made personalized cards, and created mini bouquets of flowers for the widows in our church. They came early on Saturday to shovel snow at the church and then at several widows' homes. We made visits to 19 of our widows and one of our shut-ins.
The teens always have such a great spirit. You can see the rest of the pics on our Facebook page.
