In Rapid Pursuit

What to say. . .

Posted on: August 19, 2008

I don’t even know where to start about how amazing our experience was last week at VBS.  A little background is that we used to have VBS at our church with hundreds of kids.  It was my favorite week of the year.  I loved meeting all of the kids and experiencing God through their eye.  

 

But, about 2 years ago, we stopped having VBS.  I am not sure why, but I have a feeling that we put out a ton of money for 1 week of the year and used a lot of volunteers.  I bet that the thought was that the money and volunteers could impact the lives of kids more by spreading out through the year and developing real relationships.  I AGREE!!

 

This year was a little different, though.  We took our money, our experience, our love of God, and our volunteers across town to Ireland Street.  This is a part of our town that doesn’t have a lot.  And, that is not only a statement about material things.  Many of the people in this area come from broken homes, or have no homes at all.

 

This year, VBS took on a whole new meaning and I don’t think any of us will be the same.  All ages, all races, and all ranges of socio-economic background.  IT WAS AMAZING!!
