VBS Ends with a Big Finale July 21, 2006

Posted by Laura in Uncategorized.

Our children LOVE going to church! They begin most mornings with the eager question, “Is today a church day?” so they were very excited to have an entire week of “church days” during Vacation Bible School.

They did all the usual fun things, but also prepared a skit for the congregation to conclude the week on Sunday evening. Rachel had a speaking part, but I’m not sure what it was that she said. (If you look closely in the picture, you can see the wonderful jewelry she made during Girls [or “Gulls” as Rachel says it] Weekend while the guys were at scout camp).rmicrophone7-15-06.JPG

Benjamin was King Xerxes and had a speaking and acting part. (He has come lightyears in getting over his stagefright since we started attending this church!).


Everything was going well until Queen Esther lost her earring on stage and began to fall apart.


Benjamin accepted Christ a couple of years ago, but has been a little reluctant to be baptized because of the stagefright issue. Last week, he decided he was ready and even chose Sunday night so he could be baptized in front of all his friends. We are so proud of him.


When he came out of the baptistry, he grinned and asked Joe if he could do it again!

Congrats to Benjamin on his baptism! What a joyful day that must’ve been. As a father in faith, of all the other preparations and instruction we give to our kids, the foundation of faith is the keystone.

It was about this time last year that I took my two oldest down to the lake for an old-time lake-water baptism. Our pastor and a few other kids and families were there too. It was wonderful to see them confirmed in our Lord. I bawled like a baby. :^)

Best regards,

Just a clarification on comment # 2- we are not presently selling any puppies, but if someone is willing to pay us $750 for a mixed breed dog, we may just go into business!! 🙂

Joe and family,
Congrats to Benjamin on his Baptism! Godly children tend to come from Godly parents.
