VBS Day Five: We Survived!

What a wonderful week we have had with the neighborhood children. Today our attendance was down just a little with about 30 kids present. The children were also a bit energetic today, so perhaps it was good that we didn't plan to continue on Saturday. We were happy to see that no television commercials were being filmed in the neighborhood!

It was a real blessing today to see the children review and explain the wordless book and the key points of the Gospel message. They did a wonderful job of memorizing a key verse everyday. They have taken home worksheets each day. We trust that this will be a good way to introduce the truths of Scripture into their homes. The kids wanted to learn something in English, so we taught them "Jesus Loves Me." It was neat to enter the church today and hear a group of children singing Jesus Loves Me in their broken English.

Sunday we will have our closing service. We have invited all the parents. Each child will receive a little package of school supplies. We will also present certificates to several of the best students. Pray that the parents will be interested enough to come see the program with their children.
