… to them I will give within my temple and its walls
a memorial and a name
better than sons and daughters;
I will give them an everlasting name
that will endure forever.
Today, our oldest granddaughter will graduate from Christian International School of Prague at 11:30 A.M. (our time). This will be a big step for her as she leaves Prague in a couple of days to come stateside for the summer and then go to Baylor University for her first semester. It also will be a tremendous change for her parents and siblings as the family unit of everyday life will be broken as the first child leaves home. As you pray for her, please pray for her parents and siblings.
VBS ended with a loud bang and lots of energy at FBC, Kentwood last night. We are so thankful for all the children who attended and pray their lives were enriched. We were blessed by many wonderful volunteers, adults and youth, who made every activity possible. Parents were faithful in getting their children to the church each day. There was great success when everyone worked together. We were blessed to have children make decisions that will change their lives eternally. I would gladly start again Monday because there was so much that I personally gained to. Each private conversation and hug meant so much to me. It was a blessing when they told what they learned. Yes, hearts were certainly touched this week.
The Third Thursday gatherings will be on hold until September. This is the first summer break we have ever taken, but our family activities and company schedule is more complicated this year. I always look forward to the next gathering and realize that if we wait until September for our next meeting I will really have high expectations for that gathering.
