Friday and Day 5 of Soaring with Jesus:
We learned the Bible Point “No matter where you are…trust God!” and the Bible verse: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Today was the last day of Vacation Bible School. This day always brings great anticipation and a little sadness as a fabulous week comes to a close. We had a wonderful time in Crafts, and the highlight of the week was making Frisbees today so we could “Soar” with Jesus. Recreation was filled with children racing bikes, and playing basketball. The teachers had extra time in their classrooms for additional teaching and spending time with their new friends.
As I know that all of you are waiting for the total from our offerings, I do not want to let my personal “God Sighting” be lost in all the celebration. The out-pouring of love our children had to the children of Tumaini Orphanage brought me close to tears. There were lemonade stands, cupcake stands, extra chores and piggy banks broken into all in the hopes that our children could help those who need it most. I was blessed as our 5th/6th graders saved all week to help “Raise the Roof” of our house to keep the doors open of the Tumaini house…I am proud, blown away and so very thankful to share the grand total with you. Our children raised $10, 329.87!!!! I know, shout out an Amen!
