Guys… It has been too long!
Keith and I have been going going going over the past 3 weeks. We spent 2 weeks straight every night at church preparing for VBS and actually having the VBS.
I was thinking if we had 25-30 kids that would be a great turn out for our small church. Our first night we had 39 kids which blew my mind. The next night we had 59 kids then we had 70 kids by the end of the week. The lord is good and showed how awesome He is to everyone there. It was so awesome to see how God pulled it all together. There is no way this could have happened without him. Total the church spent $33.00 on VBS. Everything else was donated or creative skills were used to make everything super cheap and awesome! The kids raised $1300.00 for our missionary.
PureFUN! Donated the juice and food for snacks. A lady at our church, Maria, wrote the skits for each night… which were AWESOME! I used some songs from my past for all the music. i created the trading cards and v-buck money and Jerry let me print it out super cheap at work. I can’t believe $33.00 total was spent. It just shows what can happen when you listen to God’s calling in a situation and allow him to work in every area.
Besides that we’ve had some fun times with friends, saw inception with Leo DiCaprio, and a few other movies in home. Had a few girls from the youth group over. worked… slept… ate… you know the normal. I hope to update a lot more over the next week. Since we kind of have a little more time on our hands :-)
This weekend we have Mark Rice’s wedding and i can’t wait! :-)
