A Peek From My Porch

A Peek Into My Life This Past Week



How I wish you could have been on our porch last week to see the great time we had hosting a Vacation Bible Club!  We had between ten and thirteen children each day.  It was a blessing to hear the children sing about the Gospel, to watch their interest in the Bible story and the Wordless Book.  It was fun to watch as they participated in our games and crafts with enthusiasm and sat in eager anticipation to hear the next chapter in our missionary story!

Because I look back on my childhood and remember so many wonderful times of hearing Sunday school teachers or pastors speak, I always wonder what the children will remember most about a week of Bible Club like we had.  What truths will they carry with them into their teen years?  What silly memory or funny story will they repeat to their children when they're adults?

Most importantly, what eternal benefits will last week have?  We will never know on this side of heaven, but all I know is that we made an investment in their lives, and we pray that the Lord will use it in these young hearts to draw them close to Him.  For those that have never been saved, we pray that they will trust Him while they're children.  For those that are already God's child, we are asking that their hearts will stay devoted to Christ!

Do you have memories of hearing the Word of God as a child?  What special memory do you treasure?

With love from my country porch,
