Pastors Andy and Sharon were asked to lead a marriage conference at the Mazatlan Vina. Katie, Mitchell (both of the American team), Ulises, and I were asked to help watch the kids. We had about 15 or so kids in a small room for roughly 2 hours and 45 minutes. Entertainment for the evening included clapping games, face painting, teaching them new songs, and a skit. We did the “Your Special Gift” skit. We couldn’t do it inside the little children’s room area, so we performed outside where the staff and guests of “Taco Time” were able to watch us.
At one point during the evening, I did have a few moments to present the supplies to the pastors of each colonial that have clowns continuing to grow (Jorge with the main Vina, Dona Chonita, Modero, and Stone Island). I was able to share the vision of clowning and a couple verses that talk about Jesus’ joy available to people and used through clowns. We then presented each supply bag to a pastor. It was short and sweet…but a moment that I will treasure always.
