Need an excuse to go to the TN Aquarium? Didn't think so, but if you did how about seeing the Twin baby penguins? For the first time ever the TN Aquarium is now caring for two baby penguins at the same time.
They are really cute and being housed in an acryllic "playpen" on the "Penguin Rock" exhibit.
When it starts to get hot outside-head in and chill out with the penguins.
Just another example of a possible "J103 Staycation" activity.
It just warmed my heart to see that you all are promoting the Backpack Project again this year. People really don't know what a ministry something so simple as a backpack can be. It's not just that you provided a child in need with material that they need, but you showed Christ to a child who doesn't always know they matter. They just want to matter, because mattering in some ways means someone loves you.
I encouage everyone that can to get involved. We all know how good it feels to realize that someone cares about you and they need to know it is Jesus that cares about them and is sending His children to show them His love.
You all are doing a great job and you are ministering to me and my family all the way in Uruguay with the Music and words that are broadcast every day. We that minister need ministering too.
