‘You Shall Love Your Neighbor as Yourself’

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31 ESV)

The Marcos 10:14 Kid’s Club learned on February 8th that Jesus told us these are the greatest commandments. The club meeting began with games and singing outside, but as the sun sank in the west it got very cold. The kids and adults crowded inside Casa Alfarero (ministry house) to finish the lesson, drink their hot chocolate and eat Mexican sweet-bread. The paper hearts with the kid’s hand prints was an especially appropriate project just before Valentine’s Day. It is also celebrated in Mexico.  It was another fun and educational club meeting. The Marcos 10:14 Kid’s Club meets every Thursday and is open to any child in the area who wants to come.

The art project was hand prints inside a heart (click on a photo to see it larger).

The games were held outside before it got too cold.

Teacher Patty stood on the stairs to talk to the children inside the house.

Hot coco was well received by the kids.

Mexican sweet-bread is always a treat.
