Jessie shared a song that she's been singing at school, and it really fits in with what we do at Trinity Tweens.
 
WITH MY OWN TWO HANDS
I can change the world with my own two hands
Make it a better place with my own two hands
Make it a kinder place with my own  two hands
With my own, with my own two hands.
 
I can make peace on earth with my own two hands
I can clean up the earth with my own two hands
I can reach out to you with my own two hands
With my own, with my own two hands.
 
I'm going to make it a brighter place with my own two hands
I'm going to make if a safer place with my own two hands
I'm going to help the human race with my own two hands
With my own, with my own two hands.
 
I can hold you with my own two hands
I can comfort you with my own two hands
But you've got to use , use your own two hands
Use your own, use your own two hands.
 
With our own, with our own two hands
With my own, with my own two hands.

We have a new world map hanging on our bulletin board.  We will be putting pins on every place that we send cards or gifts.  We've already put many up.  Check it out!

Today is a sad day at our church.  We learned of the passing of one of our much loved past ministers.  Padre Hopkins was at our church from 1984-1994, which was before most of the tweens were born.  These are picture of Padre with Nicole on her Baptism in 1993.

We traced our hands as a symbol of reaching out, and wrote the names of people we've been praying for on them.

Since we began in September, we have been following and supporting Jacob.  He lives in Florida, and he is battling cancer.  Jacob is in the hospital and not doing very well right now.  We made cards to send to the hospital, and they all have frogs on them.  Jacob has frogs on his website, because FROG means FULLY RELY ON GOD. We want Jacob and his family to know that we are always praying for them!
Please visit....

Today we found out that Kathy, one of our helpers, broke her foot.  We all made her cards, and then walked to her home to give them to her.  We all got to sign her cast!
