Today the VBS group started out our day with an icebreaker. We handed out cups of M&MS and the kids each picked three from their cups. This let us get to know the kids a little bit before we started lesson. When we did start our skit we did the story of the roman soldier having faith that Jesus could make his friend better from a far distance. The kids really seemed to enjoy it! We also got to teach them the theme verse of the week which is: 1 Sameul 16:7 " People judge by outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart." The second group that we taught all came to the front and said the verse. It was really cool to see them all up there saying it! After that we sat and planned for the next few days then we ate lunch. After lunch we went up and changed into our bathing suits and went outside to play with the kids on a huge waterside! It was so much fun! The kids wanted us all to slide down on it. This was really cool because even though we didn't know each other that well they still loved us. This what I learned/took away from today. We should have a child's faith and love for God. We shouldn't question God and his plans for us. We also should just love everybody even people we just meet. Today was full of fun and some learning experiences. Overall it was so much fun! Keep praying for us! Thank! Hannah.
