Having the Canadians...

This week TOB (think outside the box) have had to the opportunity to work with a group of Canadians who are on a world tour to perform and teach young people drama. We first had a session with them on Wednesday, then a full day on Saturday. The product of all of this was replacing the preach with a 45 minute drama about being an 'unlikely hero'.

Working with these people was such an amazing experience, they were so talented and so willing to serve and glorify God. As soon as you saw them you could see how much they threw themselves into it all and didn't care what anyone thought of them.

Whilst hanging out with them in breaks we started to build friendships with them as they were such fun and caring people to be around. Every time we didn't understand or asked a question they would always help us and go out of their way to make sure that we knew what was happening.

Then it got to the performance, to put it in three words it was: amazing, powerful but also very exhausting. Everyone who was on stage performed so well and even though I didn't quite know what I was meant to be doing at times we all had fun. I was so proud of everyone was part of it, because we may not of had very long to rehearse but they all tried their hardest to make it a great performance.

Its going to be really hard to say goodbye now because they have had such an amazing impact on us. But they have left us with so much of their spirit and great attitude on us that we can now go out and glorify God through drama.
