 VBS week revealed to us that God has a plan for each and every one of us!

Friends were made and the Gospel message was shared.   We are happy to report that we surpassed our mission goal again this year.  The children really heard and took to heart Jesus message of love and sharing our blessings.  Because of all the kids at VBS our adopted sisters, Gabriella and Lucky, will have their school costs covered and additional money will go toward the St. Jude School food fund.  WOW, GOD!


Please take a look at the photo gallery to get a glimpse of our week! 
Next year’s theme:  Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus.
