In remembrance of September 11th, the Mission Possible Kids of the First United Methodist Church in Forney visited and prayed with Forney police, firefighters and first responders on Sunday afternoon.
Warmly received, the FUMC Mission Possible Kids first visited Forney Fire Station No.1 where they delivered a beautiful bouquet of flowers along with a large “thank you” poster.
Forney Firefighter Ryan Elder provided each of the children with official firefighter helmets and had Forney Fire Engine #1 pulled out of its bay so that the children could climb aboard and check out a real fire truck.
The excited group of youngsters next made a large circle, held hands and prayed for the safety and welfare of all Forney’s police, firefighters and first responders.
The group next traveled to the Forney Justice Center where they presented the FPD with a bouquet of flowers, a prayer poster and ten Manna Bags. The children were all given police badge stickers before the group gathered close, held hands and prayed for the safety of all Forney’s police officers.
Leading the group in prayer, FUMC Children’s Pastor, Amy Madrid said “Today our mission is to come by and tell you thank you for all you do and tell you how much we appreciate you. Something we do at church is called “Manna Bags”. There are ten Manna Bags in this box. We give them out to the homeless or people in need. They have socks, and water, crackers, snacks and a little scripture. So if you have anyone in need that you can give those to, we want to pass our mission on to you, as well.”
And lastly, the FUMC Mission Possible Kids visited Forney Fire Station No. 2, where they were again graciously received by the fire and EMT personnel on Sunday afternoon duty.
At this stop, the children were treated to an up close look inside an ambulance before gathering outside the station for pictures and to again pray for the safety of all Forney’s police, firefighters and first responders.
A big impression was made on these youngsters! May God bless each of the police, fire and EMT personnel on duty when this unexpected group of children arrived. You each did a really nice job!
