Disembodied Hand/Children's Church

On Sunday nights we have Children's Church. It's for the kids. Well I'm a young servant(helper) and I help Jason and Naomi or Josiah and Monique every 3rd Sunday night (Tyler and Caleb take turns with me).
This week we acted out a play about Jason, Naomi, and I going on a camp-out. This is pretty much how it went. We all pretended to be little kids:
  Billy and Sally (Jason and Naomi) are excited to have their FIRST camp-out in their backyard. They can't believe Mom is letting them have it by themselves. Jonathan(me) comes for a little while and tells a scary story.  "The disembodied hand was sawed off at a...saw...place. John Smith was the owner of the hand. He died because it got sawed of and he lay writhing in pain until he died. The legend is that the disembodied hand roams the earth strangling people. And the First person to see it is It's next VICTIM!" At that moment I flick a flashlight on, beam it at my face, shove my hand up my shirt and act like the hand is choking me. Kids start screaming and laughing. Jason and Naomi are scared and then Rufus (a real-live puppet) comes and tells them about a bible verse that says that when they lie down at night their sleep will be sweet. PROVERBS 3:24. Here are some pics of my pajamas for the camp-out.
Needless to say Children's Church was a big hit tonight.

Funny thing...I just realized that your mother does the same thing her brother does...when a child does something embarrassing, they are the other parent's child...hmmmm....must be in the genes :)
