Highlights from a beautiful day of Zapped VBS:
- One of our volunteers frantically calls this morning with a dead car battery. Super Pam to the rescue, literally just driving by! Later on the connection was made that the preschoolers were learning about how ‘God uses other people to help us’. Yes he does!!!
- Professor Brian Bantum was shockingly good at demonstrating what the possibility of getting zapped might look like. Video to come, but let’s just say he knocked our socks off! He invited us into the boat of Simon Peter as Jesus told Peter to throw his nets out into the sea, even though he was tired and had just cleaned up. And whoa! God gave Peter much more than he expected. Not just lots of fish but a great calling to become a fisher of men!
- Watching some of our youth serve blessed us so much! Whether it was running errands for a director, prepping games and crafts, or putting on a fun and funny drama with professor Hoogleraar and cast…we have an amazing group of youth leaders at Quest! So thankful for them. And it’s especially great to see our 4th and 5th graders looking forward to the day they can serve in a similar way!
- A mom of three fantastic kids drives from South Seattle in traffic to be a small group leader. Running behind her planned schedule, and had a rough morning, but what sacrifice- to just set it all aside and be there for a new group of kids- to be available, and building relationships all morning long! Thank you!
- One of our VBS kids came rolling in, in a bright yellow wheel chair, and neon green leg cast. Leg cast will not take away the joy of VBS! Broken legs do not stop kids from having fun at Zapped!
- Kids testimonies at the end of the day: “I heard about kids who don’t have clean drinking water and I am going to help them”, “I just want to say ‘I love you [Jesus]‘ because you are good”
- The Gradeschoolers stomping during worship, made the preschoolers think there was thunder again. ’No worries’ teacher Pam tells me. They were used to it from last week’s storm.
