During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, people are having to find safe ways to stay connected. This is not the time to visit Love Lyons, have playmates, or attend any non-essential activities. So a lot of people are wondering what to do and I have a great suggestion called Zoom. About a week ago, my mother decided to hold a family game night with my father’s side of the family. Since we were not able to gather physically, we all met on an app called zoom. The app Zoom is a place where you can chat with multiple people. While on Zoom, we played bingo and taught each other tik-tok dances. I was disappointed that we were not able to gather together, but glad we improvised and found a way to be with each other. I have also use the Zoom for my Sunday school lessons, Bible studies with my teenage girl groups, and even a dance lesson.  I am looking for this virus to end soon, so we can meet again. The picture here is of all of us on the chat dancing.
