Mazatlan: January 17th

It is hard sometimes to be brief in blogs – some might say impossible as II tend to include a lot of detail in blog posts. Today, I had the opportunity to work with Krishna and the Vineyard Team in the kids’ ministry.


It enables me to see other aspects of working with kids and provides the freedom to move where needed without the administrative aspect of being a team leader. However, as this was established as a collection of stories about the clowns, I will keep today’s blog limited to aspects of the clowns.

At Modero, the team mostly led the kids in songs, prayers, and a story. They did allow me to lend my talents of singing kids’ songs, performing magic, and going through a skit. While a couple magic tricks completely fell apart, it actually was pretty good. One, because it enabled one of my clowns from last year (Ulises) to see that kids can handle a show following apart and still enjoy it. Two, it still gave me the opportunity to include kids that I bonded with in the moments leading up to the magic tricks. Three, it reminded me that the show is not about me. As people were wrapping up and going home, two little guys showed me a variety of coin magic tricks that they made up on the spot. With pride they would show the coin disappear or reappear. Moments like that are what it’s all about – to show the kids that they are special, valued, and loved.

Why Clowns?

Whether it is in a hospital, memory care facility, at a charity event, or walking down the street, that moment when most individuals see a clown they smile, regardless of age or culture. Clowns almost universally help create smiles. There is something about the gift of a smile and laughter that helps improve our spirits, relieve tension, and can inspire us to hope.
