On the third day of our VBS, three of the kids stopped by with Lynda when I was working in the office. They wanted help with their homework from last night’s VBS. It just made my day. These girls come to Sunday School on their own. I had a chance to present the Gospel, looked up seven verses with them, had them read the verses themselves and explained how it applied to them. They also memorized their verses. The youngest one was able to say her verse out loud.
Sometimes we wonder if the stress and expense of doing VBS is worth it. Times like this make me say it’s absolutely worth every second we spend planning and doing it.
