Camp Pictures Finally

Ok for those of you who are on the edge of your seat to see the camp pictures Ive been promising for 4 months, Here you go.

This is my cabin from the first week of Camp.

Here we are Lined up in front of the chapel. We would do this before every activity.

The Slip in slide is fun.

The kids caught some fish and so did I.

After Losing a game I had to eat a live Gold Fish


I Hope you enjoyed these pics. I will post some more pics of this year very soon.

Christmas Is Over Already and 2006 Is Coming Our Way

Well I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I was able to spend it in AZ with my family. First Christmas in three years all three Sweeney boys were home for Christmas.

Speaking of which we are having an open house at the Sweeney Home From 7-9 on Friday 30 Dec. If you or anyone you know would like to come let us know.

Well Sidewalk Sunday School is done for the year. We had a great time handing out Christmas presents to all of the children and of course preaching the Gospel to them. We also had an opportunity to minister in the schools last week. However we had to present a "Religious free" program. Well we did our best. We also handed out Christmas stockings to the kids at these assemblies. These stockings are filled by Christian groups all over the country so some of them contain religious saying like Jesus is the Reason. So we had to make sure we didn't give any of these out. It was a pain. Anyway its great PR for the ministry and we still teach a positive Christ centered lesson even if we can't "Preach".

Anyway Christmas was Great.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It's Christmas time in the City. We had our first snow of the winter this weekend and more is on the way tonight. This week we are giving Christmas Stockings to every child that comes to Sunday School. This works out to be a total of about thirty thousand stockings. I wrote out the number because I didn't want you to think I typed an extra zero. Well anyway Sidewalk Sunday school when its 30 degrees outside with wind is something I've never had to do before, but seeing all those kids with the stockings is worth it. These stockings are really cool. Most of them are hand sown and filled by churches and individuals all around the country. This makes every child's stocking unique. I will try to post some stocking pictures soon. If you want to make and fill stockings for next year let me know and I'll get you the info. For those of you who are wondering, I will be back in AZ on the 24 of Dec and returning to NY Jan 4. I am looking forward to seeing everyone and hope to do a presentation in our church to let everyone know what's going on at the biggest Sunday School in the country.

Until then
Serving the Lord Enthusiastically
