Vacation Bible School
Last year, after arriving in Norwich, we decided to not do a VBS program. There were only 3 kids coming to the corps, and we thought we should adjust our own family and get acquainted with the community.
Well, after a few months, we started a Supper Club, and the three kids soon turned into 25. Not a bad turnaround in 3 months!
We decided to do a Vacation Bible School the week of August 21st. The materials were ordered, the banner was hung on the corps building, and on the 21st, the kids came. Would you know that in the first couple of days, I was making three trips in the van? I was starting to have memories of Sanford! Trust me though, I will not buy a bus here in Norwich!
Throughout the week, we averaged 35 kids each day. Many of these kids are new to the Army and I anticipate that we will be seeing them come to Supper Club and perhaps to Sunday's School in the next few weeks.
God is Good...all the time!
