But it is also true we adult helpers are blessed in unexpected ways. We are serving dinner for families prior to the VBS program and I am both delighted and deeply blessed by a friend since pre-school who is helping me update my catering skills. We pray together for the children and workers and the children we hope will come. Such a joy!
I'm also getting a chance to get to know other volunteers a bit better and meet folks from the neighborhood. We had a great first night and are looking forward to feeding, loving and enjoying the rest of the week.
Will you pray with us for those who might bring their children and let our hearts sing to their hearts as we seek to be part of a growing sense of community? This area that has experienced some challenges in resent years and it is wonderful to see the work of the folks who live in the area paying off.
