Delta Baptist, Everett WA

On Sunday the 25th of January, we joined Delta Community Baptist Church in Everett Washington for their morning service.  This was the first Sunday church service they have had in their new, unfinished building.  It was exciting to be part of such a big step for this church and help them taste what is to come when their building project is complete.

We did a youth event at this church about a year ago and heard recently that the youth group has grown as a result of that UniShow outreach event.

Impact Day at Nelsen Middle School

On January 23rd, we joined over 40 presenters at Nelsen Middle School in Renton Washington for their Impact (Career) Day. Dustin shared with students in 4 different sessions about his journey to a "career" of "unicycling", challenging them to use their gifts, talents and pursuits in life to make a difference in someone else's life.

Inspired by the wise words of Abraham Lincoln found recently on a tea bag, Dustin summed up each session with: "Whatever you are, be a good one."

A few different reactions to the instructions, "Lie down on your back."

Danebo Elementary UniShow Assembly

The students were so responsive during the UniShow assembly at Danebo Elementary in Eugene Oregon on January 13th.  One of their school virtues is "Perseverance" so Dustin's message of "Never Give Up" tied in perfectly.  He had the students repeat the phrase "Never Give Up!" in unison a few times to help them remember that if they press on through life's challenges and use their gifts and talents for others they will make an impact on the world.

Helping share the Good News

The Good News Club of Triangle Lake School in Oregon took a break from their weekly creative chronological Bible story flannel-graph lessons and gave us the privilege of sharing with students on January 6.  They divided up the elementary classes into two groups to whom we presented. The kids were so enthusiastic and responsive.  It was such a joy to see their faces light up and jaws drop as Dustin rode his unicycles and then their undivided attention as he shared the difference Jesus will make in their lives!

During the program introduction for the younger grades, the organizer said that Dustin has been to many countries, probably every country the kids could think of.  One student immediately asked, "Even Arizona?!" :)
