It has been a busy week. The Go Fish Leadership was fantastic! Our numbers were down, but our passion for working with God’s kids was sky high! The presenters were fantastic. I will be posting the mp3 recordings on the website soon at http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/resources-2/resources-unrestricted/ The Sabbath afternoon sessions with Barbara Newman failed to record, but we have the others ready to go. You can find some pictures of the event on my Facebook page. I will be posting the handouts on the above site. It may take a couple days.
There are some websites you should check out that given out during the presentation on Child Protection. They are: http://www.thesevencampaign.com/
And http://www.thesevencampaign.com/the-tools Also http://adventistrisk.org/Prevention/Materials.aspx scroll down to the video-download it and share it. The pdf of the PowerPoint presentation is at http://www.adventistrisk.org/AboutUs/Events/FloridaConference.aspx
Now it is time to prepare for Go Fish For Kids. That is coming up Oct. 20-22. Hope to see your children there. Questions? Email me for further info. General information is at http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/news-2/childrens-events/
I will be going to 2 back-to-back conferences over the next couple weeks. I will be out of the office from Tues, Sept. 25 thru Thurs., Oct. 4. You can still email or text me at firstname.lastname@example.org and 321-303-7699. I am planning to bring a lot of great information back with me.
My husband returned last night from his trip to Ukraine. ( I should say this morning-we got home after 2 AM from the airport) He will be posting info and pics soon on our Foundation page. I will give you the link once he gets this done. We have settled on the goals we have for the orphanage we will be working with.
Jé Clermont is in Florida and will be doing some training with LIFE. I have attached the flyer above. This is about building your church thru Children’s Ministry. Check it out.
I must get this posted and then add the attachments. http://www.floridaconference.com/childrenandfamily/news-2/ It will be about an hour before this is finished.
“If the Lord will help us teach the children, we will be teaching ourselves. There is no way of learning like teaching, and you do not know a thing until you can teach it to another. You do not thoroughly know any truth until you can put it before a child so that he can see it.” Charles Spurgeon
Wanted to share a cartoon with you from the wisdom of Dr. Seuss
Until next time, God bless,

Another week closer to Go Fish. Get your registrations in ASAP. Also, the special rate that we have with Comfort Suites expires Sept. 7. If you want to get our really, really good rate, call them now I have attached the flyer that has the info.
Great presenters are coming in just for YOU.
Je Clermont is going to be in Florida for much of the rest of the year. He will be working with LIFE. He wants to go around to churches on Sabbaths. Below is the schedule for the training he is doing. If you want to take advantage of his talents at times, let me know and I will pass it on. Of course, he will be involved in Go Fish For Kids Oct. 20-22.
Jé Clermont will be teaching at LIFE on the following dates:
November 12-16, 2012
November 16 – 18, 2012
November 19-21, 2012
The cost for this entire time that he will be teaching includes – handouts, materials, lodging, meals, and last but not least, 4 hours of instruction by Jé each morning. We are offering the course to FL Conference Constituents and to Southeastern Conference Constituents at a 5% discount of the normal cost. The cost for the above days is $75.00/day (excepting Sabbath and Sunday) for a total of $600.00/person less the 5% discount brings the cost to $570.00.
Each afternoon the participants will be involved in a children’s evangelistic meeting that will run from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm. This will give the participants “hands on” experience that they can take back to their churches/Sabbath school classes. The evangelistic meeting for the children begins on November 1, 2012 and runs through November 30, 2012. LIFE and Lady Lake SDA church (LLSDA) will be using this as a spring board to our Sabbath afternoon Children’s Church (“LIFE, jr”) that will be held each Sabbath afternoon at 2:00 pm. Which leads me to my next point…
The weekend of November 16-18, 2012 will be a “must attend” part of LIFE, jr. LIFE is hosting a practice Children’s church on Nov. 16, 2012 at 7:00 pm in the evening. Sabbath afternoon November 17, 2012 we will launch our Children’s church and the “real deal” will take place at 2:00 pm. We would like to extend an invitation to all of the FL conference churches children’s leaders to be with us for this occasion. There will be no cost associated for this weekend event. However, those wanting to stay on campus will need to pay $30/night for lodging. The housing will be reserved on a first come first serve basis. I will send you a link next week for those who want to register. We will also have a flyer that can be emailed out.
This is pioneering and exciting for our team here at LIFE. Our team members include Seth and Katie Dixon, Robert and Rosemary Soto, Jé Clermont, Scott and Melanie Moore, and Pastor Donald Shaw.
Please pray for us as we put all of the details together for this event. And for the launching of LIFE, jr.
There is a website dedicated to parents and those working with kids. It has some great and sobering information. There are handouts, fact sheets and more that you can download. Check out http://www.digitalkidsinitiative.com/
It is especially pertinent for parents of teens.
That is enough for today. I need to get to the attachments. And I need to get Cali’s picture posted on Facebook. She is so excited about going to Go Fish and meeting Duffy. You must come and meet her.
Until next time, God bless
