Vacation Bible School!


Gavin and I before the first night of vbs

This week has been a busy one for us. We have had vbs Sunday through Thursday, and
we will have our closing program tonight. I am making homeade ice cream for the
fellowship to follow! Yum!

I have had some help this week at home as well as vbs. Ashli and came and stayed with us most of the week and MacKinzie came for a couple of days. I had a dr's appointment yesterday and Gavin went to work with Ashli for a while. Thanks Ashli for all your help this week!

As far as vbs we have had a WONDERFUL week! Our theme this year is Passport to the promised land, where we have studied the life of Jesus. Each child was issued a passport and received a sticker for each place we visited this week... Bethlehem, Nazareth, Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, and Calvary.

Last night after VBS a young lady in my class (I also taught her when she was in first grade at school) came to me and said she wanted to get saved. So... I showed her the Romans Road and she received Jesus as her personal savior there on the hay in "Bethlehem" in the classroom. I was so proud of her for making that decision!

When I was leaving on Thursday night this is what the sky looked like. God is AMAZING, just look at his creation! Wow... Breathtaking!

Gavin was not able to go last night to VBS, he caught a 24 hr virus... he was so sad to miss it! But he is feeling better this morning! I am thankful to be a part of a church who loves the Lord, and works hard in the ministry of Christ!
