I was a MOPS carer this year for the first time. M.O.P.S. is the Mothers of Pre Schoolers group that runs each fortnight in town.
The Mums all get to sit and talk, hear guest speakers, do craft activities, eat yummy food, and get some time out, while the kids are looked after by volunteers.
I got involved for a number of reasons. The main one is I could see it as a way of helping Mums have a break and be ministered to. Another reason is I really love little kids and helping them.
Each fortnight I got to run around and play chasey, play with toys cars and robots, make things with play dough, and generally just be a big kid again! It was fun.
One great thing I love about the group is that it is not just run by one church. It is held at the Seventh Day Adventist church, but the volunteers come from all the churches in town. It is a real joint effort for God’s Kingdom.
MOPS is now finished for the year, but after all the fun I got to have playing this year, I should be back next year to do it all again!
