HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (KT) – On Saturday, fourth- to sixth-graders involved in the Mission Adventure for Kentucky Kids will be sharing their handiwork to the community.
For the past two days, in this mini-mission trip offered through the Kentucky Woman’s Missionary Union, children have been involved in a variety of activities that will allow them to shine God’s light in the western Kentucky community.
Jon Auten and Stacy Nall have coordinated the event that finishes Saturday.
Children had four tracks from which to choose: sewing, landscaping, woodworking and cooking. Volunteers led them through learning about their chosen area.
“They’ve all done such a good job,” Nall said. “The kids are learning to give. It’s going real well.”
The children had a block party for the community on Friday night where they will interact with other kids in a party atmosphere. Each of four groups will lead in playing games, Nall said.
Then on Saturday, the track groups will be taking their projects into the community to shine a light.
The sewing group will be taking Teddy bears they stitched together to a crisis pregnancy center; the landscaping group will be taking flowers to beautify a local ministry center; the cooking team is putting together a meal at the Salvation Army; and the woodworking team made Tic-Tac-Toe boards that they are taking to a senior group of veterans.
Following the activities they will gather one more time for a celebration before leaving. Nall said the volunteers have worked hard too in helping direct the children, who also had daily Bible studies every day.
This is the fifth year for Mission Adventure for Kentucky Kids, said Nall, who has been involved with it from the start.
Next year the Mission Adventure for Kentucky Kids will be in Campbellsville, she said.
