Freezin' for a Reason

Last Sunday, we celebrated in Kidztown at Faith Baptist Church! The children were challenged to raise $3,500 for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and wow- they were SO passionate and excited about raising money for missionaries!  They went above and beyond the challenge, raising $4,576.17!!! (Click here if you would like to know more about the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.)We were praising God for His blessing and provision for international missions; we were so thankful that Kidztown could be a small part of His big plan! We celebrated the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering with our 2nd annual Freezin' for a Reason dunk booth! Several of the men who serve in leadership roles in Kidztown joined in the fun and took an icy dip in the water! And burrrr... it was cold outside on Sunday morning, even if you weren't soaking wet! wink. Enjoy the pictures! 
Pastor Ryan, thanking thc children for all their hard work.
Mr. Jeff, getting ready to take the plunge!

There goes Mr. Scotty!

Mr. Kip, waiting patiently  for the ball to hit the target.
Mr. Don, dripping wet after his turn in the dunk booth.

Mr. Cody, carefully getting into position.

Mr. Scott, plugging his nose in anticipation.

Mr. Andy was a real crowd pleaser! The children went wild when he came out, all dressed up!

Mr. Ben is SO funny. Oh, the stories we have about Mr. Ben!  The following picture makes me laugh every time...

(He's not really mad! He was just playing around with the children about raising TOO much money! wink.)
Now it's our Daddy's turn! Wubs and Bella thought this was the best part! wink.

Oh no! Almost time to go into the water!

Pastor Ryan, heading into the pool!
