On weekends when I am available, I work at my church’s Adopt-A-Block ministry. We reach out by providing free food in the form of a grill-out, some fun and games for the kids, and offering school supplies and bikes for children. While meeting some basic practical needs, we hope to also have the opportunity to share God’s love and grace to the wonderful people we meet each week.
During most of the event, I make balloon sculptures. (And you thought I just did magic!) At the end I do a brief magic presentation with a message.
We’re receiving a great response from the people in the neighborhood. We have had great support from local schools and community organizations. Other schools in the surrounding area have invited us in to do the program in their area as well. It is great to be able to take part in this ministry.
