Jesus is ALL-POWERFUL... We talked about Jesus' power over nature, demons, sickness, and other things last week during VBS. Over 300 kids (and adults) heard about Jesus' power. We just pray that everything they heard will take root in their hearts, and that many will someday understand the power of Jesus' blood in their own lives.
Trying to keep hundreds of kids occupied before we started singing every morning was a challenge... Here some of them are playing tug-of-war.
Keith taught the 12 and up class, and a few days had OVER 80 kids! That's a ton of teenagers to keep track of... Lots of the girls in our house were in his class, and were a great help with registering the kids.
One day we were talking about how our classes went, and I (Emily) was saying how I love teaching the 3 and 4 year olds, and how fun they were, and how we played games, etc. Keith told me about how he had to drag a kid out of class... Well, let's just say I was very glad to teach the younger kids.
We had a fun class... The kids just make me laugh. Since they won't pay attention to the story for over 10-15 minutes, we played some games as well as doing the Bible story, craft, etc. The day we talked about the blind man being healed by Jesus, our ALL-POWERFUL God, we blind-folded the kids and led them over to a bucket of water to "wash" their eyes and be healed of their "blindness..." They thought it was great!!!

How exciting for some of the kids to hear about Jesus' power- maybe for the first time!

Please join us in praying for the many hearts that heard the word last week during VBS... Many may return, but some we will probably never see again. Pray for God to do abundantly above all we could as or think, according to HIS POWER that is at work within us.

Ephesians 3:19-21
