Thanks for a Great VBS - 2010

We have just finished our VBS for 2010 and I believe everything went very well. I was determined this year to keep a record of everyone who helped in any way to make it the success it was. I was doing pretty good up until Monday, when people started running around like a bunch of busy ants. There were several people that I knew would be a part of the program, but then others showed up to help and I couldn't keep up with them all.

The point is that even though I had the best of intentions and would like to call each of you by name, the fact is, there are too many for me to keep up with. However, you know who you are and I thank you very much!

We averaged 124 kids for the week and 51 adults. Now that doesn't include the adults who worked behind the scenes helping to get things ready before VBS even started.

You know, one of the problems with VBS, as well as other areas of ministry, is that you never really know just what you've accomplished until further down the road. How much did the kids get from VBS? What kind of an impact will it have on them? How much of it will they remember? All I know is that whenever we are teaching God's word, good will come from it. Isaiah 55:11 tells us that once God's word goes forth it will not return void. So, once again, if you helped in any way with VBS this year, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

For His Cause,
Tim Woodward
