Kids Raise Money for Missionaries!What a great weekend we had Friday, July 10th thru Sunday, July 12th, as "The Boomerang Express" came to New Hope. With an "Australian Theme, this years bible school was one of the best in many years. We had approximately 75 kids and over 40 adults for the weekend (43 kids were registered "on-line" through this website!).
Every year there is a missions offering contest between the boys and girls that attend. This year the girls won, with over $500 given by the ladies and girls. With the boys effort added in as well, the kids raised over $850!
The kid's offering is set to be split between 4 missionaries in Australia, Idaho, Tanzania, and beyond.
The kids learned the VBS motto: "Follow, Worship, Live For Jesus", and also their VBS scripture 1 John 4:9 - 9 "God's love was revealed among us in this way: God sent His One and Only Son into the world so that we might live through Him."
They also learned other bible verses, did crafts, learned 3 great new songs ("Boomerang Express", "I'm Gonna Follow" and "Because") and ate alot! They had a great game time on Saturday (7/11), as well as a great commencement ceremony on Sunday evening (7/12), including ice cream!
There were a few "mishaps" along the way, but all in all, God blessed this event in an awesome way!
