Joseph-From Prison to Palace VBS (Part Two)

Here is the "Nile River". There were three pools set up, one with wheat, another with sand and the other with water. The kids had a ball playing!
They earned "gold coins" and were able to purchase some trinkets at the toy shop. Josh enjoyed being a shop keeper/guard.
On Thursday all families were invited to fun, games and singing. Here the kids are trying to beat the adults in making mummies out by wrapping toilet paper around them.
The adults won! They made an outstanding mummy! We had a great time fellowshipping and celebrating the 15 plus children who came to know Jesus.

Your VBS amazes me! I wish I was closer to you and then I would send my children to attend. It is amazing what can happen when we work together for the glory of God.

Have a blessed Sunday.

Looks like VBS has been fun!! :) Oh and to answer your question...ha ha... the weight loss. is coming off s-l-o-w-l-y. Not at all like it did the last time back when I was thirty when the weight came off so fast. It's ok though...I am not going to be discouraged because my exercise regime has been amazing. I've been walking/jogging two miles almost every day. I am up to more of a jog than walk which is significant. Compared to two months ago. So...I am pleased with that. Thanks for asking :)

Our church used the "High Seas" curric. I've always wanted them to choose one that had an obvious Bible theme about it- The decorations are so cute?

Wow that looks like such fun! What exactly is vbs? I'm not sure if we have anything like that here in Australia.

Kathy, VBS stands for Vacation Bible School. Many churches in America have a week long intensive program that teaches the kids Bible verses. They usually have a theme so there are lots of decorations, snacks and crafts that go along with it. It is a wonderful way to draw kids in that normally don't come to church. The Gospel is presented several times during the week and there are usually many decisions made for the Lord.

Hello Stacie! I subscribe to A Wise Woman Builds her Home and while I was looking at some of the comments, I saw your link and got super-excited...because I recognised your name from an article in an issue from Above Rubies!! It felt as if I had run into an old school friend, so I just had to pop in and say hello. I am a SAHM to two little ones (so far!) from South Africa, where we get the Above Rubies magazines many months after it gets published in the states, but it remains such a blessing. Your story stood out for me, since I had a friend in a similar situation who was greatly encouraged when I shared your article with her. Anyway, just wanted to come and say hi!

My kids loved going to VBS this summer too, but since neither one they attended was at our church I didn't really get any pictures :(

Looks like your church did a great job being creative for them!
