June 1st: An Amazing Day
Today we woke up for an early breakfast and went right to work. Half of the group continued painting the windows and while the other half sorted through crafts and decided how to redo the crafts to fit our huge number. After such a crazy day yesterday we readjusted our plans and split the children up by ages. This way worked extremely well. Today was all about how God cares for us. We told the story of the great Samaritan and made a craft that went along with the story. We sang great songs consisting of Hallelujah Praise the Lord and other simple songs explaining Gods care. So todays vbs was a huge success and God was definitely glorified. After vbs we returned to the compound and jeff taught the older girls several praise songs in English and they also learned in creole. Listening to the girls worship was such a beautiful sound. tomorrow we will be sharing the story of Christ to anywhere from 600 to 1500 children. Please pray that God would speak through each leader and translator and that his words would be extremely clear and well perceived. Pray for rosna (the church children's minister) as she follows up with the children who will make the biggest decisions of their lives tomorrow. I have high hopes that tomorrow will be even greater than today!
