Vacation Bible School

Gage attended the First Baptist Church's VBS last week and really enjoyed it. He was very insistent that he attend every night that way he could be entered for a prize. He went Tuesday thru Friday evening every night from 6-8:15p.m. On Friday evening I went and attended the program night with him. They took each class individually to the front and one child from each class was awarded a prize for memorizing the most verses. Much to my surprise Gage won. The prize was a huge assortment of beach toys. (Right up our alley)

 I would ask him every night what he learned or did and he wouldn't tell me much. Then Friday standing there he re sited what he learned. Who is this kid up there standing in front of everyone in church, resiting his verses he had learned? I would have believed he was there only playing but he actually absorbed what was being taught!
He came home with new sand toys, a t-shirt, large sand bucket, toy dirt bike, hot wheels car, sunglasses and other misc. stuff. No wonder kids love VBS.

Glad Gage attended and had a fun time at VBS, but the most important thing he received were the stories he learned about Jesus, and how much He loves us and wants us to follow Him. Love you, Vicki
