For the Kids, Part I

The children's highlight of the year is Vacation Bible School. It is a lot of work, a lot of time, but worth it because of the smiles on little faces and the knowledge that we are helping them take a first step that may result in their eternal life.
 
Here are some pictures from this year's VBS:
 
A Trip to Rome
 
Five Days of VBS, divided up in two groups of kids so we could have more in manageable sizes.
 
A Visit to Paul in his Prison-House.
 
What Was the Underground Church Like?
 
What Happens if the Angry Roman Soldier Catches You Worshipping Jesus?
 
Different Plays Every Day (Here's David as a Slave)
 
Here's the Kitchen Crew
 
Games, Crafts, Stories, All This for the Kids and for Jesus.
 
We thank God for:
 
    - the Joelton church of Christ, who sends their VBS material down each year to be used here.
    - Lori Hagewood, who organizes VBS each year. We missed her a lot because she was in the US at the time.
    - Joyce and Abbey Troxler, from the Laurel church of Christ in Knoxville, TN. They came down to help out and brought prizes and gifts for all the kids.
    - for our AIM team who, though not knowing any Portuguese, jumped right in and made an impact on the kids.
