As we wrap up our first week of VBS we are a bit exhausted. Exhausted and very sweaty….yes…sweaty do to an extremely hot summer week of 120 degrees that does our facility’s swamp cooler NO justice. BUT!! Can you imagine how many hearts we have touched for Jesus all this week? Our little ones will remember this week as a fun enjoyable experience where they learned more about their creator. ALL WORTH IT 100%!!!
Planting those little seeds this week we were very fortunate to have a youth group from Dayspring Mennonite Church from a far far away land called Midland, Virginia. They were very engaging and amazing to watch as they connected with our kiddos. We can not thank them enough for their support, help, and caring hearts that lead them here. They made VBS TWICE more fun and gave us a special encouragement with their presence and energy. We are only sorry that they came out in the smacking middle of this heat wave. On the plus side.. they now know you can cook an egg on our side walks. Who’s hungry?? Just kidding! Don’t grab your plate!
It has been an amazing week and we couldn’t be happier. Everything turned out for the good of our Lord. Extending our hearts out and putting in time, effort, and lots of sweat for the spiritual growth we long for our youth to mimic. We are thankful for our interns and volunteers who also helped extremely. We strive for generational transformation and this is a prime example of what it takes to get there.
