This morning we are off to CLAN gathering. We have been asked to lead a (very gifted) team looking after the P7 age group (fifty 11-12 year olds). The last couple of days have therefore been spent finalising plans and gathering the resources that we require into one place, but I have just realised that we have forgotten one thing...hot chocolate!
We have decided to go with a chilled out cafe theme as the youngsters arrive each morning; we have got amazing cups - they are so professional, great signs for the different areas, the flasks for making the drink up in, but no hot chocolate! Thankfully, for such a minor problem, there is an easy solution.
If you are into praying then please pray for CLAN this week. Our prayer is that God would speak in the main adult meetings, to the young people in our care, and to us - be that words of challenge or encouragement (I personally think that either are encouraging at some level because even challenging/hard words mean that you are hearing from God). Also pray for the parents/carers of the children who will be with them in the aftermath of whatever they experience this week - that they would have the wisdom to answer questions when needed and to model Christ at all times.
