We had a great week of vacation bible school! I remember as a kid, how I looked forward to that week. A week of fellowship, crafts, bible stories, games and food. As I grew up and started working with VBS, I realized how much work was involved, but still how rewarding that week is. We have some amazing people who help out. And their energy and enthusiasm is contagious and keeps us going each night after exhausting days. One of my favorite parts is “mission time” and learning about missionaries around the world, and how God has changed their lives. This year, we raised money for orphans in Romania, and my heart felt extremely heavy as we looked upon the faces of those sweet children in that orphanage. Those sweet smiles amidst a world of ugliness they’ve endured. They are learning the love of Jesus. And I’m thankful for the workers who have given them a safe place to live and worship the God who created them. We raised enough money this week to build them 3 houses! Praise be to God!
“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him”
~ Colossians 1:15-16
