Wilderness Escape VBS: Day 2

July 15, 2014 — Leave a comment

Day 2 of our five-day Summer Bible Camp (aka VBS) was great!  (Read about Day 1 here.)

I always love the chance to roam around and personally say ‘hi’ to everyone, so I took some time this morning to visit with most of our family groups.  While visiting, I heard children recite Day 1’s Bible verse and hear some of their God sightings.  I also got attacked (I mean hugged!) by some of our campers, which was very sweet.  My heart was filled even more when I walked past two of our God Sighting posters and saw them filled with all sorts of ways that our campers have seen God around them.

Another highlight was carrying around a box of doughnut holes for our volunteers.  By carrying the snacks around vs setting them on a table, I was able to personally thank them for serving and hear how their first day went.  I LOVE that.

After our opening worship celebration, I was able to sit in on the drama – today the children tasted ‘quail’ (marshmallow peeps) and ‘manna’ (frosted flakes) – and see our sand art and rope making stations in action (I will share more specifics about this tomorrow).

Verse for the day:

“For your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!”

Matthew 6:8

Here are a few pictures from Day 2:
