A Good Night
Night #4 is in the books, and I think it was my favorite night!
Things ran smoothly, we had 71 kids, lots of staff, and the kids heard a clear presentation of the Gospel several times during the night!
I mean, really....it just can't get any better than that!
One of our crew leaders told me last night that this has been the best group of kids we have had in a long time, and I agree!
I am so thankful for the kids that God has brought us this week, and for their excitment to learn more about God's word. What a blessing it has been to hear the kids asking and answering questions. To hear them respond to "God gives us life!", with a hearty "FEAR NOT!"
I've heard some stories of some of our kids this week that are facing tough times in their homes.
What a blessing to know that this week we are filling those kids with the truth that God is with them, that He is Powerful, that He does what He says He'll do, that He gives us life!
There is nothing more comforting that we can send them back home to their tough times with, than the truth of the Gospel!
Tonight will be a bittersweet night for me and our last night.
I'm wore slap out and ready for a break and some down time.
But on the other hand, this has been a really good week, and I don't want it to end.
Things are changing at Centercrest, and I don't know what that holds for our VBS ministry next year. It could all be different next year, and if it is, I am thankful the Lord has allowed us this really great week to minister to those around us.
Thank you for the part that you have played in this ministry.
You have been effective in the work of the Kingdom.
