Some people have favorite sports teams and others work as a member of a team for their jobs. Since I don’t work outside my home and I don’t play sports, often, I rarely think of myself as “part of a team”. The reality, though, is that I am blessed to be part of an extraordinary team of men and women who are committed to giving their free time to the youth in our community — leading small groups, cooperating to coordinate and lead youth groups, and even to travel and participate in short-term missions with the kids they lead and mentor. These generous and giving people are willing to make tremendous sacrifices to be sure they are available to support and encourage the teenagers in our church and community, once, twice or even several times a week, year-round. They share their faith, their enthusiasm, wisdom and encouragement. They invest the time to build relationships and give kids a place where they are safe to be themselves, to share and work through difficulties and to give a voice to their dreams and aspirations. They care so much about “their” kids they’re willing to ask the hard questions, walk with them through life’s lessons and encourage them along the unique path God has set them upon. They will jump right in beside the youth of our community and work and serve beside them. I have so much love, respect and appreciation for this fantastic team of men and women, and it’s a privilege to be able to work and serve with them.
Ready to check out, at Walmart, with my TCBY surprise for "the team"!
Every Wednesday and/or Sunday night, my team shows up at the church thirty minutes before youth group, to plan, organize and discuss, to pray for the youth group, each other, and the needs of individual kids. They give up their family time, and sometimes, their dinners, in order to show up early enough to participate in these important organizational times. Then they spend the rest of their evening worshiping, teaching, counseling, and interacting with the kids they love so much. These same team players give up at least one more afternoon or evening per week, to lead a small group, usually in their own homes. Their devotion to youth, to inspiring and teaching the next generation how to live, serve and share in their communities and to be a light for Christ in everything they say and do is a great inspiration to me. It’s an honor to work alongside them.
Enjoying TCBY Fudge Bars
provided me with a unique opportunity, this week, to “celebrate” my team and provide them with a tasty treat during our Wednesday night leader’s meeting. I wasn’t able to attend youth group, this week, since I made my trip to BlogHer in New York, but with a little help from my daughter, I was still able to surprise the team with TCBY Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches and Chocolate Fudge Bars. With the triple-digit temperatures we have sustained over the last several weeks, in Nebraska, frozen treats are always a big hit! The team really enjoyed TCBY’s frozen yogurt sandwiches and fudge bars, though one of my partners in chocolate-loving crime, felt that the fudge bars appeared to be much more chocolatey on the packaging than in real-life. Packaging aside, the cold treats were a refreshing pick-me-up and a great surprise on a hot Nebraska evening. Yum!
TCBY Frozen Yogurt, in pints and quarts; as well as a variety of frozen novelties, like Fudge Bars, Orange and Vanilla Bars, Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches and Strawberry Swirl Bars; are available in the freezer case at your favorite grocers.
