“The LORD will fulfill his purposes for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.” Psalm 138:8

Today was another day of VBS, and the word of the day was salvation. Things really seemed to click today in VBS – as the week has progressed we have gotten better at navigating the culture, placing the children into groups (strategically), and crafting a smooth schedule. Our unity as a team seemed most evident today in seeing everyone work together. The kids are already getting sad about the week coming to an end. We also helped with more re-organizing and putting the church in order for Sunday. This afternoon and evening was spent as a team; we spent the afternoon at Steve’s grandson’s house for a birthday party, and we met up with Graham Fujiwara for dinner. It was wonderful to relax and fellowship together as the body of Christ!

As the second to last day of VBS comes to a close, we are thankful for God’s steadfast love, and we are praying that God will help us finish strong tomorrow. The last day will include a special presentation of the gospel, and we are planning to talk and pray with any children who are interested. We are hoping and praying for many opportunities to share our faith. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers!
