August

This week the last group of kids are at camp. Ages 13-16. Last week we had VBS with over 50 in attendance. I know that I have not posted updates on the second week of camp or on VBS but I hope to...sometime...in the future! If not, we will for sure send out a prayer letter with updates. This entry is to post a poem written by our 11 year old son, Zachary.

"The GREATEST NEWS EVER"
One very cold spring night,
Was a baby in a bed of corn,
And in a shepherds field came a light so bright;
And an angel saying, "Jesus Christ is born!"

One very bright spring day,
Jesus teached and taught,
He healed the sick and those in dismay;
Loving and compassionate, Jesus never fought.

One very cold spring night,
Was our Lord locked in chains;
And on Calvary was a mournful light;
And our Lord was whipped with canes.

One very cold spring night,
our Lord was stripped and cursed,
And was nailed upon a cross but without fright,
And Mary Magdelene on watching into tears was burst.

One very bright spring day,
Three women saw Christ's empty tomb;
An angel said, "Please do not dismay,
For Christ is risen, not in this dark room."

When the news of Jesus spread,
God's secret was unveiled;
Jesus Christ loves all, put it in your head.
I hope the Good News is fully revealed!
