Thankful Thursday – Laugh-a-ble Moments

We’ve been rather busy this week with the teens and getting ready for RU Sunday, I’ll tell you more about that later. Today I’m thankful to be married to a man who will do silly things if it will bring a teenager to church.

Kenny, recently has started growing a “goatee” just for something different.

Christmas 2006_thumb[1]Here he is with his brother Wesley, so you get the basic picture of what that looks like.

Kenny has started going on Tuesdays and Thursdays to the high school during their lunch period to sit with our teens, meet their friends, check up on what they’re doing, how their day is going, etc. Brandon, one of our teens we hadn’t seen in a while came over and started joking about Kenny’s goatee, telling him he should shave it all off and just leave a “soul patch” – a small triangle patch of hair under the bottom lip. Kenny told Brandon that he would do it IF Brandon came to church Wednesday night.

Well… Brandon came to church :)

P8250023 it took a couple tries to get a “good” picture…


It also took A LOT of begging to get him to let me publish the pictures on here :)

Kenny is going to see the teens for lunch today and show Brandon his soul patch. Then, he said, he was “shaving the rest of it right off!”

I know this is kinda silly but we love our teens and we’ll do silly things sometimes if it means they come to church and hear God’s word.

*If you think about it, some of our teens don’t have the best home life. Please pray for them to be faithful so Kenny and I, along with the Church can show them the love of Jesus and hopefully give them a safe place to get away from the stresses of everyday life for them. Thank you.*
