I need to tell you all about something super exciting that is happening this week at the MIX. We're hosting a Christmas party for kids from the Bridge. (The Bridge is an inner city Christian ministry on 20th St.) We're having kids bussed out to Lakeview and we're doing it up big style with big bouncy pits, games by Neil, snowcones, cotton candy, XBox, and of course a visit by Santa. I'm trying to bring a new attitude to an upper middle class youth group. We need to use our "status" and "resources" to reach out to people who need it. The administrative details of this project have been a bit shaky but they are coming together. I got an e-mail from the Bridge Kids leader Louise today that said 32 kids have already signed up and they're expecting that to grow to 50. That's awesome!!! We would really appreciate your prayers this week as we try and give some deserving kids an out of the ordinary special experience during this Christmas season.
