The youth (singles) at Living Water Baptist Church decided to do a 4 day VBS. Through the years, we (My wife and I and also Vicente and Gabriella Garcia) have lead many different VBS’s with many of these same youth helping. This year was different. They planned and ran things mostly without our help. They did ask me to teach one day and my wife to do the verse one day. I think they were only honoring us because they are fully capable of doing everything without us.
Each day they had over 200 children come. I was so impressed with all of them. I am so proud of them. They taught well and lead well. I sat back and watched most of the time. This isn’t what I am used to, but I was filled with great joy as I watched the God of Heaven use their lives. It was a beautiful thing. Many children made professions of faith. After the singing, Bible verse recitation, lesson, and review questions were finished, they took all the children to a schoolyard that is close to us and played games with them, rewarding the children with candy for winning a game. Most children here never get a chance to play games like this, so they absolutely love it. It is quite evident that the members of LWBC have taken the baton and are running with it.
