We celebrated Valentine’s Day at the Marco 10:14 Club meeting February 14th. It is a day that is honored in Mexico as in the US. It was a Christ centered lesson and there were red hearts everywhere. “We love because he first loved us,” says the Bible in 1 John 4:19. Tonyia brought fifty boxes of those little heart shaped candies and individual chocolates from Texas and each child who could recite the verse received one. All forty kids memorized the verse and got a box of candy and a chocolate.
We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19
The entire lesson was from 1 John 4 that “God is Love” section of the book. The craft reinforced the lesson too. We also treated the kid’s to “elotes” which is corn on a stick with mayonnaise and hot sauce brushed on it, and a special cheese sprinkled on it. Lulu boiled fifty pieces of corn still in the shuck in a big pot. It is a treat reserved for special occasions.
Thankfully there were many adults helpers primarily from the Getsemani Church. It was another great club night – praise Jesus. (Note: below are photos from the club meeting – click on a photo to see it larger)
