On July 13th, teens from Metro's Teen Church went to Lewisdale Park. We passed out balloons and popsicles to those in the park. Children enjoyed the popsicles. Quite a few of the balloons flew away, but it made the children happy. When three kids walked over to our picnic table and asked "Can we get more balloons?" Novella said, "Here. Take 5!" it made me smile. I decided to take part in the activity because I knew that it would be fun. I definitely enjoyed it. Even when people said no to our offer of balloons or popsicles, they still smiled at us. I would recommend doing an outreach activity to all of my friends.
The Teen Church leaders reported that they gave out about 60 balloons and 100 pops. They were proud of how the teens worked together - every had his or her own station to man - inflating balloons, tying string around the balloons, distibuting pops - etc. The folk in the community were very appreciative of the outreach.
