Today was such a fantastic day, everything went so smoothly. Day 3 of VBS always seems to be the best day of the week.
Our theme for the day was about loving with our words and actions and the kids seemed to really latch on to the lesson today. We focused on respecting authority, listening and being honest. I pray that these godly character traits would truly become a part of who the kids are.
We served the kids lunch again today and had the help of several of our older boys. And although we ran out of food yesterday, they still decided to help us instead of getting in line. It was such a powerful testimony of how they are growing up in the Lord for them to give up their lunchtime to help serve the children in our school. Such a beautiful thing to see.
Today was our last day of Teacher Training. The whole training went really well. Everyone was so grateful for all of the new tools and techniques they now have. At the end of the training, we had an assembly with all of our team and our Haitian teachers, administrators, and translators. Each of them received a certificate for attending the training and they were over the moon excited about them. Once they were passed out, the principals gave a thank you speech to our team for coming and giving them the invaluable training they received. They said that although they can't offer us any gifts, they can pray for us and ask that God would bless each of us. Their thank you was beautiful and it touched many of the people in the room.
Danny gave them a charge for the next school year and we had a large prayer time together. We all had the opportunity to pray over each of the teachers at all of our schools. It was such a powerful time of prayer. You could feel God's presence with us in the room. It was such a privilege to be a part of this special prayer time for our schools.
Tomorrow is our last day of VBS. Pray that the day goes smoothly and that we finish well. Pray for sweet goodbyes to the school kids, teachers, and translators. We have grown to love them over the past few days and it will be sad to leave them. I can't believe that tomorrow is our last VBS day, but I know it's gonna be a good one!
