After a restful afternoon and evening yesterday, we began our second day of VBS. Although a lot has changed from our original plans, everything has gone surprisingly well, and everyone has been flexible. Praise God! We have had a lot of fun the past couple of days singing songs, listening to lessons, watching skits, doing crafts, and playing games. Today the kids learned how Fluffy (our mascot for the week) listens to and follows the Good Shepherd's voice. Throughout the day, we have been asking the kids who their Good Shepherd is, and it is exciting to hear them shout out, "Jeeeesuuuuss!" in response.
Now, we are about to begin our next set of crusades in a new location: the Miss Phoebe area. For the next three days, we will have VBS in the morning and crusades at night, so it will be a few full days, but we are excited! Let's pray that God continues to move in powerful ways through VBS and the remaining crusades!
- To my knowledge, there have been no power outages since we listed that as a prayer request. Thank you Lord! Continue to pray for this.
- The first two days of VBS have gone very well and have been a lot of fun.
- Yesterday afternoon we had some time to rest. This was very nice, since we will have VBS and crusades for the next three days (Tues.-Thurs.).
- We have continued to grow closer as a team throughout the week, supporting one another, and enjoying being around one another.
- Please pray for Tabby and Lynn, who will be sharing their testimonies tonight during the crusade. Pray that God would calm any nerves they have and that He would use their testimonies powerfully.
- Pray that kids will remember to invite their friends and neighbors to VBS and that others in the neighborhood who have heard about the VBS would remember that it is happening and that they would come.
- Pray that God would give us the strength and energy we need for the next few days.
- Please pray for the crusades in the new location (beginning tonight):
- Pray that many people come out.
- Pray that the gospel would be clearly understood and that God would bring people to faith.
- Pray for Seth, as he is delivering the message at tonight's crusades.
