This week has been SO busy at church with VBS in full swing! I LOVE having the opportunity to be involved in VBS every year. It does make for a tiring week, but it is SO worth it to see all the sweet little smiling faces and I think sometimes the adults have more fun than the kids! We are all kids at heart and love being able to not only have fun with the kids, but try to teach them about the love of God and what He has done for them.
Tonight is the last night and they will be having the big service for all the kids. Then it will be time for a big meal to end the night and then they can take home their crafts that they’ve worked on that week.
This is Kyeli’s first time to be involved in VBS and she has been loving it! I love that these babies are getting to be in church at such a young age and small seeds are being planted into her tender mind and heart about our great Savior!
Every year for VBS Jonathan teaches the 9 & up boys and I love working in the craft area! Jonathan is involved in so much of what takes place every night from helping teach the boys class to playing the music for all the songs, running the slides, and he is also one of the characters in the skit every night! I love his heart for the Lord and how he wants to be involved in every part that he can be. 🙂 I love watching him with the kids and even get to hear him teach his class for a few minutes from time to time when I’m not working in the craft area.
There are so many little things that I see him doing everyday that makes me know even more that he is going to make a GREAT Daddy someday!
On another note…. Please be praying for Jonathan. Yesterday morning he was riding his bicycle and had a horrible wreck. I ended up taking him to the ER because he hit his head on the road and then passed out for a few seconds so I wanted to make sure that he didn’t have a concussion. He is scratched up really bad and very sore. He has three stitches in his ear but we are so thankful that he does not have any broken bones. Doctor wanted him to be treated as though he could have had a mild concussion even though the CT Scan showed that he was ok. While i do not want to make light of the severity of what did happen to him I am also very thankful because it could have been a lot worse.
His biggest concerns were the expense of the ER visit and would the blood come out of his pants! He was also really disappointed that he ripped his shirt. (It was one of his favorites) 🙁 Needless to say…. we were not able to go to VBS last night and I don’t expect for us to be able to go tonight. Please pray for quick healing and recovery for him. He will be starting antibiotics today to also make sure there are no risks of infection and to also help him get over a sinus infection that the CT Scan showed that we had no idea he has. Poor Guy!
Please continue praying for us as we are anxiously awaiting what the Lord has planned for our future and that we will have the money we need to do our IVF procedure soon! We know the Lord’s timing is best but we can’t help but still be excited.
If you have it to give today would you please help us get a little closer to our goal?
