One more post to squeeze in before 31 Days starts tomorrow!! This will be my third year joining the challenge! Excited to see what everyone is up to. Don’t miss out! Goes LIVE tomorrow (October 1) between 8-10 pm EST. Find me in the FOOD section.
Two of my three boys and I travelled across the state to share our church’s VBS program with another church who could not afford to put on their own. I know we had many prayer warriors on our side as we headed off with new friends…to make even more new friends. Most of our team had not met before the trip. The first day we drove there, set up and had VBS and it went amazingly well. We did not have as big of a turn out as we had hoped, but the unity among our group and the church we were working with was beautiful.
Among our team, my boys were the ONLY boys. Lots of girls! My nine-year old was fine with it until about the third day when he expressed how he was missing his male friends back home. My three-year old on the other hand…was on cloud nine! He was the youngest on our team and so all the girls (ages 7-16) wanted to play with him, chase him and carry him around. I am sure you will notice from some of the pictures that he didn’t mind AT ALL!
It was a week of blessings! So many new friends made, the gospel was freely shared and we can’t wait to do it again next summer!!
Drove, set up and jumped right into VBS that evening. Busy day!
Settled-in to our bunk house accommodations.
Fun at a local park. Especially exciting when the goat got loose! Sorry…didn’t get a picture of that one
Trying to get two boys to smile for the camera…not so much.
Muscle work! Moving mattresses for the mission. SO VERY HOT that day!
Beach day before heading home. Boys thought is was awesome to find coconuts on the beach, so we had to bring a couple home with us!
LOVE this picture
He likes it!
Pretty much how we all felt by the end of the week…
