like”what the heck did I just do?” kind of afraid.
but you know what, i knew this was God’s will.
most of them immigrant families from central america.
Kevin and I have opened our home to anyone who needed love.
daily we have kids over who want to play or read or bake.
mostly they are saying “I just want someone to love me, to notice me”
and we get that incredible privilege!
we fail a lot,
and sometimes lock our doors while the kids pound on it.
but mostly that front door is wide open.
we have led workshops on cooking and basketball,
we have crammed 60+ ppl into our apartment for a baby shower we hosted for our neighbors
and learned all about mexican baby shower games, haha!
I started a girls group for college aged girls doing crafts and games and just hang out.
we’ve discipled kids, and been hurt by them.
but the bottom line is we’ve tried to love like Jesus.
and it’s rocked our world, hard.
we’re not perfect,
but i’m learning that really we just need to be available.
because when we are open is when God brings people into your life!
it’s been a joy.
