Dear Friends in Christ,
We are diligently preparing for this summer’s VBS program and it’s a pleasure to watch God working to meet each of the needs and workers for each position that needs filling. Our program this year is “Kingdom Chronicles”. It is a study of the battle between the Kingdom of Darkness and the Kingdom of Light and how we need to put on the armor of God and prepare for battle. Many of our people are very aware of this battle in their homes and personal lives and each battle differs as Satan attacks our weaknesses. We pray for them in their trials and our goal is to train them in God’s Word, which is His armor.
2 of our families are talking about removing their children from the public education system and starting home-schooling this coming fall. They hope to meet at the church and work together in this endeavor. This is a new challenge for them and they are looking at various curriculum and trying to prepare themselves. Please pray with us for these two families regarding what materials to use, how to schedule their days, how to adjust their budgets to include the added expenses… but especially how to encourage their children to live lives that are God-honoring.
We had 4 teen girls go to Christian camp this past week and they all seemed to enjoy themselves and have shared how God has challenged them in their personal lives. We have some jr. campers that are anticipating their turn at a week of camp that is planned the week just prior to our VBS. Pray for their safety and for God to work in their hearts as He sees the needs.
The plan is for Sam to have some teeth again this coming week. Pray that they will be a good fit. We are thankful that God has provided a dentist that is willing to take payments to pay for this final step. He has proven Himself so faithful-over and over again.
Thank you for your prayers each month, as well as the financial help you send to enable us to continue in this ministry.
Sam & Janet
