Vacation Bible School
We just finished our Vacation Bible School. It was for ages 2 year old through 6th grade. The youth group from Westside in Midland, Tx came down and did a fantastic job. The youth group door knocked the entire town, then decorated. On Sunday we had 23 kids, Monday 57, Tuesday 46, and Wed night for our final program we had 65.
The teens form Midland did a wonderful job doing service in the community. They picked up trash at the park, served at the nutrition center, cleaned a studio that is going to be used for ballet, tap dance, karate for the youth of the community, and cleaned windows for businesses in town.
They ended the week by going tubing in Juction at the Llano River. The group was such a blessing.
I met alot of parents and have 50 contacts to follow up on.
Isn't great to see that youth groups aren't just about fun and games but about service. As a former youth minister it is great to see that youth still have a heart of Christ when it comes to service. Teens are often sterio-typed as being lazy, complainers, these teens proved that sterio-type wrong.
I am so thankful to God for this week and know he is going to bless Westside and Rocksprings.
