God Always Wins- Day 4
What a great end to an amazing VBS!
Today we taught the kids about choosing a side. They can make the choice to be on Gods side (and we know that God always wins) or they can choose to not be on his side.
Our stories for the day were Jonah and the whale and Saul's conversion to Paul. The kids enjoyed hearing both of these stories and making their related crafts.
After our classroom time, we had an assembly for all of the children to perform some of the things they've learned this week. Each class got to choose which song and memory verse from the week that they wanted to show off. It was such a great show! All of the classes did an excellent job showcasing all that they've learned and it was quite impressive how much they picked up in a week.
Tomorrow is going to be a great day! All of the kids are coming to our house and we are having a party! We're going to BBQ, play games, and have a balloon fight. We are excited to spend some time just having fun with one another.
Praise the Lord, with us, for the wonderful week of VBS that we've experienced. Pray for our day tomorrow. Pray that we cherish each moment we have with our new friends. Pray for opportunities to show Christ's love... even in the mundane.
Pray for us as we prepare to leave. Leaving a place that's dear to our hearts is going to be tough. Pray that we would have peace as we say our goodbyes.
