Missing In Action...

If you've been wondering where we've been all week...
It was Vacation Bible School time!

The kids had a blast. They learned all about Rome and Paul...
and most of all...
about how much God loves each and every one of us!
They made necklaces, headbands, bracelets, abacus....
They did woodworking, wall building, learned about putting out fires in ancient Rome.

They got to see what it was like at the market place in Rome. They bought food and items with coins that they received at the beginning of each day. They met Paul and met members of the underground church in Rome.

They played Roman games.

They hung out with some animals (horse, pony, donkey, bunnies, peacock, pheasants, ducks, etc).

Chey and Miranda were helpers...
Chey was an actor who portrayed a member of the underground church. Some of the kids were very moved by the stories told each day... some cried and wanted to help the members of the church.
Miranda was a family leader. She led a group of children around the market place like they were a family in Roman times. They kids loved her!

On Sunday, we will be inviting the family members of the kids to attend and watch their kids perform some songs they learned this week. There will be a slideshow of the photos taken by... me... that will play during the service showing all of the things the kids got to be a part of.
After service we are having an icecream social so we can hang out with our church family.

God has blessed us... and the smiles on my kids faces and the feeling of being loved is all the proof we need.
