Week 7:

Each year for the past six years a group from Second Baptist Church has come into Countryside to host a VBS. Last year they came soon after we moved in and we did not have a chance to pair up with them. This year we helped plan and facilitate the effort and even got t-shirts!

In years past, the group has simply found a vacant yard and held VBS there on the grassy sand. This year we gladly opened up The Connection and had a great time with the team. Simple Bible stories and crafts were shared and the event was closed out with a water day—complete with a real, water-squirting fire truck!

Two of the highlights of the week were the free haircuts and the school supply giveaway. The kids also made birdhouses and the girls learned how to jump rope. We are blessed to partner with so many local bodies that believe in outreach and meeting the needs of their community.

Each night before the team would leave, they would gather for prayer. Asher volunteered to pray one night. His maturity and compassion showed and it was an encouragement to us as his parents. He prayed thanking Jesus that the volunteers came to love on our friends and that our friends would ask Jesus into their hearts. We all left feeling uplifted and my heart was full.

 Jesus said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.

Mark 10:14-16
