Parents,

The MS students played sardines Sunday night, as usual. This is definitely the year of the sardines. These students also got to hear my testimony and the Gospel message. There were lots of good questions and they could take home a simple reading plan and book for new Christians. I hope you get to look it over with them and have some good faith discussions. If your child wasn't at youth group and you want the simplified reading plan and the book, just let me know. I will get it to you.

The HS students talked about why it's important to have a mission of sharing the Gospel. Ask why they are important in God's plan for all people.
