30 Hour Famine, part II

I am still curious as to what would possess my kids to want to do a second 30 Hour Famine in the same year. They enjoyed the joint church one yearlier this year well enough, but apparently it didn’t compare to the ones when we did it ourselves. I made a pact with them: if they would do all the preparation for all the games, I was willing to set up a second famine. I have to say that I was really impressed with them; they really stepped up to the plate and lead the games and bible verse discussions. Pictures courtesy Paul Lu.

The Getty — Venice Beach

We took River of Christ on a day trip out to the famous Getty Museum to escape into the world of art and aesthetics and then Venice Beach for dinner and a sunset stroll to enjoy God’s natural creation. Pictures courtesy Paul Lu.

Union Rescue Mission

We took the youth kids to Union Rescue Mission to help prepare and serve food to the homeless. I hope it was an eye-opening experience to the youth kids, who I think are sometimes overly sheltered in the Asianness that is Arcadia, CA.

Santa Monica Beach

This seens to be the place to go to take youth kids. :) This time, it was mostly my junior high kids. We topped the night off with raw fish at Gin Sushi. Yeah, only in California.

30 Hour Famine, Part I

This annual youth event usually takes its toll on me for the week leading up to the event, so this year I decided to join in with a bunch of other area churches (host church: Arcadia Presbyterian Church, as part of the 210 Youth Ministry Alliance, which has now disbanded, unfortunately. It was good to meet new kids from other local area churches and take a breather from the massive planning that is involved in such a large event. We were able to help serve at the Foothill Unity Center by helping separate donated food for easier distribution to those in need.

University of California, Riverside

I traveled again to UCR to visit some of the kids there. This time I cooked a simple dinner for them. And I tortured Angel Lin.
