Tonight our small group met at the FMH emergency room. We put together little yellow plastic bags (complete with Daybreak logo), filled with candy, apples, water bottles, pretzels, and various happy meal toys. We then went through the emergency room and offered these bags and offered to pray with people. Who hasnâ€™t been to the emergency room, having rushed out of the house (because it was an emergency) and have had to sit there for hours with nothing to eat or drink, or even do.
We saw some people who had visited Daybreak months before and disappeared into thin air. I do have a new theory about people visiting and not coming back to church. Itâ€™s not that they didnâ€™t like us, they are just still waiting in the emergency room!
C. was able to pray with a woman and talked to her for some time, and I and D. were able to pray with people as well. So overall the event was a great success. All my kids also went. Joshua was cool with just holding the bags and handing them out to the rest of the team. Caleb and H-G were racing against each other to see who could hand them out the fastest. Isaac was well past his bed time, so we had to keep the stroller going at all times. All of them (except Isaac) kept sneaking candy out of the bags, so we are going to have to discuss why we were giving it away.
