One of the biggest joys of working at ECA is the focus on serving others starting from a young age. Once again, my PK class was able to go to the nursing home and serve the grandparents. This is one of my favorite events of the year because my students get to practice what they are learning.
Every visit, God speaks to my heart through the loving service of my students.
While chopping fruit my students were saying “oh, make it small in case the grandparents don’t have teeth” Or “Wow, mango, that’s my favorite, I hope the grandparents like it too!”
On the ride there my students were excited and eager to arrive.
And the most amazing, the moment we walked into the nursing home my students were so loving! They greeted the grandparents without fear. While dancing and singing they were focused and joyful to share God’s love through performance. And when it was time to serve the snack and talk with the grandparents, most were excited and eager to reach out.
I can’t think of a more beautiful picture than seeing my students willing, able and joyfully serving others.
