Tuakau Christmas Parade

Two weeks ago (I know... late post) our church and Bible Club where in the Christmas Parade here in Tuakau. About 40 people from church and Bible Club turn up, which was a blessing. We had a great time sharing Jesus Christ with the people of Tuakau. 800 tracts and candy canes were distributed and many people read the signs. When we passed the judge she read the sign over the van on the loud speakers which read, "What is a man profited, if he should gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" (Matthew 16:26) And then the sign Mercy was holding in the trailer which read, "We love him, because he first loved us." (1 John 4:19) Praise the Lord! :) 

So here's a heap of pictures from the day... I tried not to post too many, so as not to bore you all too much. :)

Getting the sign on the van.

More kids in the trailer.
(Mercy, Leigh-roy, Patricia, and Renee)


The street was starting to clear out by the last round.
The parade did the route two times down main street and then the winners went a third time. By the time they finished giving out the prizes most the kids were sitting in the van relaxing. hehe

We won second place for church category.

A yard full of people.
(You can't see all of them here.)
Mrs. McGreager (mother of some of our club kids) was telling riddles and jokes for the kids while they ate. She really had them putting their brains to work... and they loved it.
