VBS in Talca

Our week at VBS was so much fun. We started on Sunday with a walking parade around the church area. We ended on Friday night with a parent night. The church was packed with students and parents.

Wow it is Thursday

At Sion, we enjoyed a great Wednesday night service. even thought we didn't understand a word it was obviously a great service. The A's gave their testimony and Pastor H preached. We had Chilean hot dogs for dinner that were topped with guacamole and tomatoes.
Last night there was a party next-door to where I sleep. Since I couldn't sleep, I packed for the trip home. I can't believe it is almost over. VBS was great today. I am enjoying the morning greeting of a kiss from the children. Tonight we are off to a cookout in a neighborhood with lots of children. It would be a great neighborhood to start a weekly children's Bible club. Pray for new workers and those who live here to be able to reach out to so many young families.

Chile's Hot

Day one of VBS was a great success. There were 48 children present. The crown was a huge hit. Lots of jewels were added to their crowns. For lunch we had a genuine Chilean meal. N, whose house I sleep in, was in charge of the cooks. In the afternoon we prayer walked and visited in the home of one of the members. She sews and embroiders. She has four machines and her embroidery machine is just like mine at home.

We had over 50 in VBS today. Since it is Valentine's Day we had a love theme for crafts. I shared about my trip to WA with the children in the opening. They saw pictures of some of the cataract patients and heard about eyes that were open.

In the afternoon we went with the pastor to Aqua Life. The boys really had a wonderful time swimming.

Today we worshipped at igelsia evangelica bautista sion. It was packed. There were lots of children who are so loving.
This afternoon we participated in a VBS parade. We called for all the niƱos and the ninas to come out so we could give them a balloon and an invitation to VBS starting tomorrow. JT and C were so good at passing out the invitations. While some team members prepared crafts for tomorrow, I went to IEB Getsemani and gave my testimony. Juan preached. It was a wonderful day.

Wow! What a few hours of bumpy flying can do for the weather. We are here and I am enjoying the summertime. The ride down was through a valley with lots of fruit. I love nectarines. I think I will get my fill. Tomorrow at worship I will be speaking for a short amount of time.
