Vacation Bible School 2007 – GameDay Central

GamedayOne of the highlights of the year at our church is the week of Vacation Bible School. Last year Rhonda, Trey and I taught a Kindergarten class and had a great time. This year, Trey helped with the snacks and I helped in the 4-5 grade music. What a blessing it was!!

The theme this year was heroes. In our music class, we tried to help the kids understand that all of these sports stars that we consider heroes may not be heroes at all. A true hero is one who obeys even when it’s not easy, does his best in all situations, believes in Jesus and follows God’s plan, put others first, and tells others about Jesus.

Group-Shot-2As for VBS, we broke records again this year. We had over 1,000 people participate in VBS. Every year, the kids bring change to donate (this year the proceeds are going to help us rebuild a house in New Orleans on a future mission trip). Over the week, the kids brought in 1,203 pounds of change. The girls ended up winning the annual contest (they always do, it seems) but the total was a record almost doubling what was given last year. Simply amazing!

Even better than that was that 29 kids gave their hearts to Jesus during the week, including our Noah. We are so proud and grateful that he listened and heard Jesus calling him. He will be baptized in a few weeks. So what a great week we had. Now, in a couple of weeks, I am off with Trey to youth camp in Red River, NM. That should be interesting.

Top 10 Reasons Why I Procrastinate

Yes, I am still among the living.

Well, it has been a long time since I did this. I guess it is funny that I fancy myself a writer and then never write. It’s just that I don’t really have all that much to say most of the time.

We are having a busy summer. I am keeping busy with the guys in my Southern Gospel quartet. We have even spent some time in a recording studio if you can believe that. People say that we are really good but I never seem to be totally satisfied when we sing. There is always something that we can improve on. We talk frequently about the “God filter”. He takes care of us because I am certain that what people actually hear is not always what we sing. That is the God filter and we are mighty thankful to have it. In reality, we prepare and try to do our best but are all convinced that if we give each performance to God and give Him the glory and praise we will be fine. And, gosh, have we been busy lately. We have sung five times in the last three weeks.

I decided to change the ole website because the pictures of the boys were so outdated. Desiring to keep it simple, I found this design and thought it looked decent enough. It really didn’t take me six months to redo the site. Actually it was only about 5 minutes. Anyway, I hope you like it.

I am gonna try to update this thing much more frequently. I know, I know. I have said it before. I seem to procrastinate so. But that may be the topic for another time.
