Halloween Outreach

"So, mom, if we are not dressing up for Halloween, why is Daniel wearing that?"
"What are you talking about, he hasn't taken this outfit off in a week, this is Daniel NORMAL."
Byron says he looks like the people he saw in West Virginia a few summers ago at youth camp.

Ally took part in a really great Halloween outreach put on by the 5th & 6th graders in our church. It was a powerful event and Daniel was their biggest fan - on the front row for all 8 performances!

Ally was part of the dance team and she had the opportunity to talk to a lot of people about Jesus. She helped 3 people pray and accept Christ into their hearts and witnessed to many, many others! The outreach took place on a CRAZY busy street (over 700 people estimated).

They used dance, drama, puppets, and testimonies to reach the crowd. Today was Ally's spiritual birthday - what an ideal way to celebrate it!
We didn't end up with much candy, but we really had a great time! This will be the 1st time in MANY Halloweens that we won't be waking up to a yard covered with toilet paper, forks, saran wrap, and all kinds of other Leland fun! We won't miss the mess, but we sure do miss the messers!

We can share some candy if you want some! We can even come and toilet paper your yard if you want!
