We recently had a Vacation Bible School experience that was over the top!  I’d like to brag on the leaders and workers that made it happen, but its even more important to proclaim that we serve a great God!  He changed and continues to change my life, he changed and continues to change the lives of the leaders and workers in VBS and He uses His word presented to kids to lay the ground work to influence them for righteousness too.  What a mighty God!  And what a loving, personal God!  Hard work and lots of energy describe what went into the teaching of God’s word to about 150 kids and over 50 workers this year.  After talking with boys and girls, moms and dads and workers — God used it, and He will continue to use it too.  Isaiah 55.11 says, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.  That’s why we teach it and that’s why we continue to study it.  God prospers His word for the purposes He intends.  And that’s also why we worked hard, for Him.  He is our King and He is our Lord and He merits our service.  A sincere thanks to everyone who participated in some way as we journeyed off the map!
