In February 2013, I had a déjá vu moment. It was while visiting an after school Bible Club. My friend Sherrill Cressman (and TCI Board Member) teaches at McClure Elementary. Sherrill and fellow teacher, Chloe Brown, started an after school Bible club, which has over 50 children in it – an outstanding accomplishment. Sherrill asked if I would come and teach the children in their Bible Club to do balloon tying. Tying balloons was one of the outreach tools I taught my Junior High Bible class (many years ago). Would I come to McClure? And by-the-way, the Mayor’s wife, Victoria Bartlett, would also be at the Bible club reading a Bible story for the children. I was blessed to help. It brought back a lot of great memories of taking children on outreaches.

I owe a BIG “THANK YOU” to Sherrill for the opportunity to work with such wonderful children. I enjoyed my dèjá vu moment when the technique came back to me. It was just like old times!
