VBS - Where it all began!

 

VBS is back!  We are full speed ahead and this summer it was MONUMENTAL! This is an important week of ministry as it is one of our evangelistic events.  Not only do we reach out to our "regulars", but we reach even further into the community with flyers in the the local food ministry boxes, with Belk Farm employees and door to door contact in many of the local trailer parks and apartments.  We did our usual itinerary of worship time with lots of passion and getting the kids engaged, bible lessons, memorizing scripture, crafts, games, snacks and a store. It’s a fun-filled week where we invite and transport kids from the surrounding areas of Mecca, Oasis, Thermal and Coachella. 

We were also excited this year to bring back our Jr. Highers who enjoyed a week of "Riding the Wave" and learning how to share their faith with others and to trust Jesus in all circumstances.  Here's a couple of comments from our students:

     "Jr. High Escuelita (what we call VBS around here!) was sooooo much fun!  I made new friends and we learned to never            be afraid to share Gods love with everyone because that's how we make waves for God."

       "At first playing the games during the first day of Escuelita felt scary and embarrassing but I enjoyed it all by the                     second day. It helped me not be afraid to share with my friends who don't come to the bible studies at Tesoro Club."

We are so grateful for all the volunteers who served so faithfully and joyfully and loved on our kids; as well as the many donations that helped curb costs and allowed us to concentrate on ministry to the kids.  We knew and felt the many prayers that were prayed for this week and we can give full testimony and glory to God for all His answers!

We hope you enjoy taking a look at our pictures and video to give you an even better perspective and idea of what this MONUMENTAL week was all about - yes, our God is an AWESOME and AMAZING God!
