VBS Day 1

We made it! We had a VERY chaotic beginning, but I guess that's to be expected with 500 kids getting registered!

In our Special Friends group, we had 13 kids! Two of those were unexpected and required 1:1 help, but the Lord brought us two available people at the last minute. Ranging from ages 3 to 14, we had 4 kids with Down Syndrome, 2 with Autism, 3 in wheelchairs, 2 with feeding tubes, and 2 with various other disabilities. Wow! It was a great day. Great to be able to spend the time with these special kids, great to be able to give these kids' parents a break for a whole week!, great to help familiarize typical kids to some new challenges, and great to be able to share Jesus' love with these unique little ones.

Keep praying for us!
