Whew. It's nearly 11pm. We all worked getting ready for the vbs all day! We worked hard all day. This morning we went to church and had a great time with the people here in New Jersey. After church we worked from 2-10pm getting ready for the vbs. By 3 or 4 we were despairing of life itself, and then by the end of the day I feel like we are actually almost ready. I have seen great things in the lives of these kids -- i've seen them happy, sad, tired, grouchy. I've watched them step up to the plate and be bold and prepare when they didn't want to (tired, scared, lazy). I am very proud of them tonight. Tomorrow we begin our very first day of vbs with kids. They are ready!!!
Pictures and a report coming soon. I'm sorry. We were so busy I couldn't write a proper note, I am typing this from the foyer of the church where the guys are sleeping. 2-3 are already out. Two are in the next room sleeping. One is showering. Lights out in minutes. Love to all in Christ. Pastor Rick
