Salvation Army Phoenix

Be a Daniel standing up for the Right

In the heat of the 'Valley of the Sun’ afternoon, 8 wonderful volunteers from First Southern Baptist Church braved 110 to serve the families at the Salvation Army shelter in Phoenix. What a blessing for 18 children and 4 moms to listen and learn from the book of Daniel: Daniel refusing to eat the king’s food and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refusing to bow to the king’s idol while God protected them in the fiery furnace.

A unique treat emphasized the story as the children reenacted the story in costumes the volunteers provided as ‘active learning’ experience.

Crafts included string art at one table, chalkboard drawing, dragonfly clip and a ‘bug keeper’. Very popular the ‘bug keeper’!!

While the children glued, colored, manipulated clothespins for the various crafts, Margaret Warden hosted a ‘mom’ table with sharing God’s love and encouraging them in their relationship with their Savior.  Each mom left with a silk rose with Isaiah 30:18 “the LORD longs to be gracious to you”.

Decorating cookies with yummy frosting topped off the afternoon as the kids walked out with smiles and frosting on their faces.

Get Dirty -- Plant Something

“I must have flowers, always, and always.” 
― Claude Monet

Peggy Klitzke, Master Gardner, presented a flower experience for the ladies at the Salvation Army recently.  Prepared tables had mounds of potting soil, pebbles and sunny yellow and apple red flowers for planting. [Peggy emphasized importance pebbles for good drainage].

“Getting Dirty-Plant Something” was a fun time learning about flowers and planting while also hearing the name meaning of some flowers such as:

Aster-contentment: Philippians 4;11 “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content”,

Calla Lily-beauty, purity . “The lilies of the field, even Solomon in all his glory was not as beautiful as one of these.” Matthew 6:28,29

Gardenia-purity, sweetness [conveying joy] “whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
