Part 4-----Huge Blogger Catch up!!

This year, for the first time in several years, our church put on a Vacation Bible School. (July 18-22nd) It was exciting to see so many visiting children and the folks in our church get so excited in helping spread the Gospel.  We averaged over 25 kids each night ending with a service on Sunday night in which we did a big "push" to get parents to attend.  Our goal was not just to see children come, but to invite entire families to hear the Gospel.  We were so excited that many of them attended to watch a special slide show of their children as well as hear the Gospel preached!  So many of our folks got involved to make it a success.  We were so proud of our teens and the way they helped out as well.  Kayla played the part of "Cooper"....which was definitely the favorite of all the kids! :-)  She did a GREAT job!  The theme was "What's the word on the street?"  We focused on different words each night such as:  Faithfulness, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Compassion, & Grace.  We look forward to what God will do with the next VBS!

In August, our friends, the Friedleins invited us to Jim's change of command ceremony from Bogue.  We were very excited to attend and so honored to be invited!  It was our first time ever going to anything like that.  It was so neat to watch how it was done and see them honor Jim.  We were so proud of the speech he gave which gave honor to his Lord and to his family.  (p.s. one of my favorite parts of the ceremony is when they played "danger zone" on the loud speakers while out on the tarmac! :-) too cool!)  We finished off the afternoon with a ride on my brother's boat.  Jenny stayed the afternoon with us at my parent's trailer at Goose Creek and we grilled steaks.  Yum!
