VBS at our New Birth Baptist Church

This was our pastor's first try at VBS since he graduated from Seminary.  Nehemias has done a very good job.  We have learned a few things along the way.

The attendance was good for January, the biggest days attendance was 130 children. All our classes were full.  Pedro had the 12-18 yr old, Nehemias had the 8-12 yr olds. Felis and Janet had the 5-7 group and I had all under 5.  Today I had 33 little ones and 2 moms and one big sister.  We pray that as the children tell their families of what they learned some parents will have the desire to come and hear the word.

22 children accepted the Lord,  several were from our home, but it was great to see those who seem sincere and showed their desire to Follow Jesus.

We are anxious to see what the Lord has for us and Eagle's Nest this year.

Thank you for your prayers.

We are very thankful for the Mission Team from University Heights Baptist in Stillwater, OK who came just in time to help with VBS, neighborhood outreach, and giving a fresh new look to the home for the children.  The lady, Rosa and her daughter, who is in the middle of the team received a blessing as the team paved a walkway making her walk home easier.  We will be seeing her soon in our church as well.
God is so good to bring the right people to help the needy.  God Bless them for coming. Thank you to the church and their "Coffee Shop" for helping them arrive here to make a difference.
