5 Days, 106 kids, 13 new Christians
Well, other than cleanup tomorrow and the party for the workers on Monday, Vacation Bible School is all done. The week was a lot of work and very exhausting but so amazing! It was great to see all the kids so enthusiastic about Christ and having so much fun and it was awesome to see so many friends each day. We had 106 kids registered at Bible school this year and out of that, 13 of them accepted Christ into their lives which is absolutely amazing! And another 3 said they already knew God but wanted to grow closer to Him, it was such a good week!
In addition to having a lot of fun with the kids and seeing them grow in Christ, my friends Tat and Tyler and I also had a bit of creative fun. We discovered two days ago, after playfully stealing my friend Sam’s car keys and wallet that it was lots of fun to take his stuff (and then give it back of course!). After we had given these items back, we discovered that if placed in them very carefully, cell phones can be put in balloons and then blown up with them inside. We decided to save this knowledge for the next day. So, yesterday, Tyler got Sam’s socks and later his phone which we placed in balloons and gave them back to him. Today, we put mine, Tyler’s, Sam’s and Tat’s phones in balloons and later we put some grapes, some wool and a crayon in balloons as well. This is quite possibly the most fun thing I have done and I plan on doing this many times in the future to many different people placing lots of different things in the balloons. You should all try it, trust me, it’s quite fun.
