Having finished (for now) their study of First Aid the Junior and Senior girls have moved on to thinking about inner and outer beauty. This week their thinking about the story of Esther preparing to be seen by the King for the first time was acted out in the creation of outfits fit for an audience with the Queen, made from newspaper and copious quantities of sticky tape. The results were judged by an unexpected visitor and the outfit modelled by Josephine declared the winner.
The Explorers have been looking for messages in folk stories and how those link to the message of Jesus. The latest example was the story of the Gingerbread Man who ran away from the old woman who made him. (Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!) He ended up in the sly fox but our gingerbread men, decorated with sweet buttons and cherry smiles, were eaten with great relish by their creators.
Plans for the annual camp over the summer half-term holiday are under way. We are returning to Littlehampton Baptist Church, which is ideally situated, a short walk from the beach, crazy golf and swimming pool. Kym is busy devising a programme to entertain girls (and staff!) and which will accommodate the requirements of other users of the premises.
We will be on parade, with the Boys' Brigade, on Sunday 13th March at the 10.45am service. The Anchor Boys and GB Explorers have been practising their signing skills in preparation!
Nancy Buck (Explorer Leader)
