VBS - Day 3 and a garage sale fundraiser

Thank you all for your prayers! Last night went quite well! Praise God we had 59 kids last night! And a bunch of parents came a bit early and got to see the ending activities, which was great! Also, I think that our visitors from the other church really enjoyed being there, and got a lot out of it.

I am so tired, but I love VBS so much I wouldn't miss it! It's hard to believe though, that the week is almost over. We only have two days left. Two days... wow. It seems like forever but then again it seems like not long at all. When you think about it, life isn't really that long. It's goes by in the blink of an eye. Or, as Casting Crowns put it: "I am a flower quickly fading. Here today and gone tomorrow. A wave tossed in the ocean. A vapor in the wind..." Life is precious and we need to use the time we have to the best of our ability. And we need to use that time, that precious time, to proclaim HIS glory!

Please keep praying for VBS, I'm just going to copy and paste what I wrote yesterday:

  • The workers. That the kids would see Christ's light though our words and actions.
  • The kids. That they would understand what we are trying to teach them, and that they would come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior.
  • The parents. That when they pick up their kids that they would see Christ's light through us in the was we speak and act, and that they also would come to know Christ.
  • VBS as a whole. That it runs smoothly, and that we would be able to lead some kids (and maybe some adults too) to Christ.

  • Thank you so much!


    This weekend we are having another garage sale fundraiser! The last time we did this was 2008, so we are super excited to be doing it yet again! To see those posts please click here or in my labels click on "Family Project".

    Please be praying that we would be shining lights to those that come, and that we would raise enough money to build yet another well for those who desperately need the clean water that is right below their feet out of reach.

    I'm not sure of the all the details yet, so you'll probably get those tomorrow. :) We are doing the garage sale on Friday and Saturday.

    In Christ alone,

    P.S. I'll probably be started the James Study up again soon. Sorry I dropped it.
