The Miracle of Children

No, He'll never let go of me...


This morning Kim sent me a text saying I had plenty of time to run over to the Church for closing day ceremony of Vacation Bible School...that is if I wanted a blessing...

 Well, I have been touched this year because Andrew and Emily gave their time to Apostles VBS as volunteers, now that they are too old to be campers.  Joe and Isabelle did the same at their church's VBS.  It is the most remarkable thing to see, the tenderness that these four young people have for younger children.  If God is love then they have God within them for sure.


And if Our God is for us, then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us, then what can stand against?

I was indeed blessed and touched to tears.  I wish I had taken a better camera to capture it.  If you have really good eyes you might be able to  pick out the S-C children in the top clip.  If the sweetness of the ceremony wasn't enough for me emotionally; a young man got up to tell us how the children (and the church) had collected many, many huge duffel like bags of school supplies and were (tomorrow morning) leaving to take them to the children of Nicaragua because when asked what they needed this was their request.  Well, I have ties in Nicaragua and I have seen some of the precious children on Little Corn Island...I wanted to help too.

The helpers, teachers, and staff members have made a difference this week in Bible Schools all over this city.  At Apostles they put the word of the Lord in the hearts of 900 children.  I do believe it will bear fruit!

I'm going to write Issy right now and find out about her week. J

Beautiful blog. The life of 900 children has been enriched and they will go forth and tell the story. What a blessing to a community these days, Congrats to Em and Andy for the support they are already giving back.

The beauty of children! I know that had to lift your spirit to where the eagles fly. These are two of my favorite songs.

That´s fantastic that Apostles is supporting education in Nicaragua! There are some amazing children here, that´s for sure. (But not as amazing as my neices and nephews, of course!)

I had the pleasure of working with Andrew and Emily and I pray that as my kids progress into their teens, they will be solid-well raised-God loving-mature-helpful-loving kids as yours are! It indeed was a blessed week!

Angel, what a lovely thing to say...and you needn't worry about Lena and Dub, you gave them to God the day you first saw them as yours and their little lights sure do shine.
