VBS Makes a Difference

We never know who will come to Vacation Bible School each year.

This year’s Vacation Bible School touched the lives of 137 children; 41% (LESS than half!) of the children were from MCC families; and 18% did not have a home church listed. 

Some of the children are really hurting. I heard about one child whose dad is not allowed to come home due to a judge’s order.  Another child kept asking to take extra snacks home to his little brother. Initially we found him putting carrots in his pockets to share with his brother so our sweet VBS snack team decided to pack a bag of food for his little brother daily!  Yet another family was packing to move to another state! The needs were great this year, but God is bigger and we know He has a plan for each of these children.

Especially the last family I want to tell you about. We had two children who were visiting from Texas. What we didn’t know until later in the week was that they lost both of their parents in a horrific car accident in April. With all they had been through, what a blessing it must have been to them to be loved on without being treated differently than any other child.  Of all the VBS's in the country, and of all the leaders in our VBS, one of these children was placed in a group whose leader grew up in the same area that she is from. Wow. The 'coincidence' brings me to tears because it wasn't a coincidence at all. GOD placed them right where HE wanted them to be.

Thank you for supporting VBS. For allowing us to be God's hands and feet to the children HE brought to Mountain Christian Church VBS this year!
