We had a pretty good number in attendance (especially
considering that there were atleast four other churches
in our area with VBS the same week) It always seems
to work out that way, no matter when we have it, there
are always some other churches who have it the same
week. ( One of results of living in the BIBLE BELT, and
having soooo many baptist churches in one county)
Anyway, we had around 45 children present. It was
a GREAT week. This is a time, when we really blanket
the community, trying to reach as many children as
possible. My husband had to be out of town after the
first night. He went out to Colorado to help a missionary
family get moved. They are moving there to start a
church plant in the Denver-Aurora area. Despite being
lonely for my honey, we had a good time. I hope you
enjoy the pictures. It has literally taken days to get
them all on. (There are some big spaces between
some of the pictures~please keep scrolling down so
you don't miss them~don't know why it does that)

for an extreme adventure. She learns that it is better to
obey than to do things your own way.
She has done this for many years, and she does a
fantastic job. It takes much time and preparation.
We are thankful for her, as she makes it a very
special time for the children.
These girls are helping, not just looking pretty, REALLY!!
Some activities are really fun when done OUTSIDE
husband usually does this, but Mrs. Amy volunteered to
do it this year. The timing was perfect, since my husband
ended up being gone most of the week, and she did a
FANTASTIC job of keeping everything running smoothly.
The problem with doing such a good job on things like this
is that we now know she CAN do it! :) She may have a
permanent position!! :)
Snack time is always one of our favorite times.
