So today was the final day of VBS at Lakeside Community Church for the Conyers Mission team. It has been a great week. We have loved on lots of kids and taught them about Jesus. It is with mixed emotions that we watch the kids load up and leave as we are going to miss their sweet faces.
Yesterday during water day one of the kids asked several of us to take a picture with her. She said, “I want to take a picture with you so I can think of you until you come back next year.” This community knows Warren comes back!
As the 5th and 6th grade class was leaving Bible story time today for the last time one of the boys asked the leader of he could wait a minute. He went up to the Story Teller and told her thank you for teaching him about Jesus.
Each child was given a Gideon’s New Testament Bible today. In the 5th and 6th grade class we went through that New Testament and marked all the verses for the Plan of Salvation. As they were leaving one of the children said “Thanks for the Bible. I wanted one for my very own!”
Loving these kids was the easy part and they blessed each of us more than we blessed them. Until next year…….
