DAILY DEVOTIONAL: MILA
Hope Chapel Family, check out this devotional from our ‘Ohana Groups & Missions intern Mila Espinosa.
UNITED PRAYER: FOR THOSE WITH ANXIETY
Pray for those experiencing fear and anxiety in this time. Let’s pray that instead it would be replaced by joy and peace that comes from a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.”
FAMILY RESOURCES: COOKING TOGETHER
Over the past couple of weeks staying at home, one thing that keeps coming to mind consistently is cooking! For today’s Family Resource, we want to challenge you to gather your family and get everyone involved in preparing a meal together or making a dessert. This is such a fun opportunity to learn new skills and laugh together along the way. You will have accomplished two things at once: building family memories, as well as taking steps towards preparing each person to cook for themselves with confidence in the future. Along the way try to find ways to choose joy and thank the Lord during this exercise, and simply just have fun! Here’s a link to 28 suggestions for kid friendly recipes. You can pick one that will be best suited for you and your family. Post your meals on Instagram and tag @hopechapelmaui and @hopechapelkids. We look forward to seeing what you and your little chefs make!
