This past weekend we were at the Michigan Upper Peninsula camp meeting. My kids were involved in the youth department, and they had the most wonderful time on Friday. Then people were given a challenge. They were given $50, a driver, and all day. Their goal was to share the love of Jesus in some way with the town of Iron Mountain.

Each envelope had a Bible verse on the outside about giving to others and on the inside was a card with a random act of kindness that he was supposed to do.

What a blessing it is to give! And the birthday memories stick around longer when we add fun endeavors that include serving others.
