NCHEA 2018

Another year of NCHEA is in the books. And what a wonderful year it was!! One of our biggest years, we had about 320 children over the course of the weekend. The theme was The Great Adventure and focused on missions. Sharing God's love to the world around us.

The sixteen teams were placed in different countries. It was absolutely amazing to see the creativity in decorations this year!! Literally hours upon hours are spent getting ready. God blessed and provided just the right amount of teachers that we needed. Every year I am blown away by His faithfulness and grace as He pulls together so many last minute details and works in ways that only He can. It is truly exciting to be a part of His work! 

Elizabeth was a team leader this year and found herself in the country of China!

One of the assistants on her team made this amazing dragon to hang from the ceiling. The children LOVE walking into a room and feeling like they are transported somewhere else.

Susanna was in Argentina with three assistants and a whole bunch of children.

Alaythia helped with the Leaders In Training program which equips 13 and 14 year olds to be able to plan, prepare and teach a lesson in front of a group of people. Nathanael was in the drama and I helped out with the staff.

100 volunteers, lots of time and energy, not much sleep and numerous prayers.
God is good.

"By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us.
And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren."
1 John 3:16

You normally post about the drama you do for NCHEA. Will you be doing that again? I always look forward to those.

@Shonda -- I actually didn't get many pictures of the drama this year. I know some other people captured some, but we don't have copies of them right now. Otherwise I would love to post some!!
