KICK UP YOUR HEELS: VBS '07 IS IN THE BOOKS was a wild ride!

We had 115 children in our 2007 Vacation Bible School this year. Our theme was Group's Avalanche Ranch and our KidServants went all out to have one of the rootinest, tootinest VBS's in recent memory. It's all actually a testimony to God's grace, as some of our (my) organizational abilities fell apart, issues and challenges struck, and last minute technical glitches erupted. But now, a week later, I'm still amazed at the skills of our leaders, the touching one-on-one ministry opportunities we've had with some hurting and sometimes angry kids, and most of all in the grace of a God who can take our feeble and sometimes stumbling efforts and turn them into something beautiful and exciting.

These are only a few of the pictures from the week of July 9th. For all of you who did Avalanche Ranch (I've seen a lot of your blogs and YouTube posts!) or for all my fellow servants who are the middle of whatever summer programming, I rejoice with you!
