Jesus is My Superhero
by Caroline Morales
The Impact 6 week VBS program has been a huge success. This summer the children learned about the life of Jesus and how He is our ultimate SuperHero! Jesus did so many amazing things while on earth, and He continued to amaze us this summer. I truly believe that He worked through so many people to make our VBS a success.
Youth Groups: 23 visiting Youth Groups from all over the country served at VBS this summer. These superheroes made connections with our kids and loved them everyday. The groups brought exciting skits, crafts, and games that brought each Bible lesson to life.
Summer Interns: 25 high school and college aged young adults spent their summer serving as interns and leaders. They were amazing examples of shining God’s light on the hot bus routes and long days of VBS. An extra amazing fact is that 15 of these interns attended Impact VBS when they were younger. It is a true blessing to see so many of our previous VBS children grow up to be SuperHero servants.
VBS Children: The 330 children who attended VBS this summer are the real shining stars. The kids brought joy and smiles to everyone who was part of the program. It is amazing to see the love and excitement of the kids when they come to VBS each day, and the way they want to learn more about God’s word. We challenged all the children to learn all the books of the Bible and 6 memory verses. Several of the kids went home the first week and practiced each night and were able to recite it all in just a few days. These children are a bright future for God’s kingdom!
So many people worked together to serve Jesus so well this summer. Countless SuperHeros made a huge difference! A huge thank you to YOU – your prayers and support mean the world to each and every child that attended VBS this summer.
