Schools are wrapping up and most families shift into summer schedules this week and next. Well done all! Some years we limp to the finish line (how many end-of-year parties/projects/field trips can there be?!?), but I pray these next months offer you and your family room to recover and recharge.
Just as the school schedules wind down, we are ramping up -- it's Vacation Bible School season! Countless boxes of craft supplies are piling up, volunteer lists are posted and filled (thank you, Lord!), and our custom-crafted, one-of-a-kind stretchy bandannas have finally arrived (whew). We also have nearly 100 hundred children from our church and community signed up to attend (a few spots left, see below for details).
But we still have one last need. We need you to pray for us. We need prayer for last minute preparations (May everything be remembered...), for all our volunteers (Bless them with energy, patience and joy), for all the children attending (Bless them with open hearts, listening ears and new friendships) and safety (Watch over all our goings and coming and doings).
Finally, I ask you to pray for our program leaders Ingrid Ladendorf and Len and Andrew Scales these next two weeks. They are leading VBS and PresbyCamp, respectively, as I will be away.
I am grateful for our good team and can't wait to see the pictures and hear all the good news when I return.
with much joy and appreciation.
