VBS first day!

Posted on

Thank you for your prayers for our VBS campaign.  We had a great opening night with a lot of enthusiasm, a staff ready and excited to serve, and great music from Steven and Rachel.  37 children were in attendance with many parents staying for the whole time.  We challenged the kids to bring friends back and they were all excited to do so.
The weather was fantastic for outdoor games and the kids loved the activities.  The crafts were a hit and kept their attention.  Our skit team did a fantastic job as they worked together for the first time.
All in all we are thankful to the Lord for a great first day.
My request to you is that you would continue to labor in prayer to God for the salvation of children and moms and dads this week.  Much labor goes into making the best VBS that we can possibly pull off.  Stop by and see the church, the workers have done an amazing job of creating an under the sea environment for our Ocean Commotion theme.
Jesus said, “Allow the little children to come unto me and do not forbid them from coming, for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”  We reach out to children under the direct call of Christ to invite them to Himself.
Our hearts are grieved with the parents and friends who lost loved ones in the Orlando shooting.  Let us remember that Jesus showed compassion on the woman taken in adultery.  For while she was wrong she needed the Savior’s compassion.  There are many grieving people today who are seeking solace in many different places.  It s not a government issue here but a people issue.  We as people need to let other people, made in God’s image for whom Christ died to redeem, that there is and always has been hope in the Savior.
Good news, the day care did sell; the papers were signed Saturday morning.  I am going through the finances today to determine how much our financial liability is going to be.  Our first assessment is that we are going to need between $8,000 – $10,000 to finish paying people and bills.  Pray with us for God to show Himself mighty on our behalf.  Again, thank you for all of your prayers for this endeavor.
Have a great day in the Lord,
PS
