Summer is a fantastic time for teaching at Vacation Bible Schools and camps. Rich recently took part in separate VBS programs in two different locations (as many as we can get). A comment we heard from one of the older participants was an encouragement. She told one of the VBS leaders – “Not only is he (Rich) teaching about the Bible, but he is also teaching about science. I learned more science in 30 minutes than I did in six months at school!”
Another interesting comment concerned salvation. One young gal expressed – “You can’t know for certain if you are saved.” But as the week progressed, Rich had the opportunity to share with her 1 John 5:13 which states, “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.” Rich was also able share with her an in depth presentation of the Gospel message. By the end of the week when he asked her if she knew for sure that she was saved and would go to heaven, she confided to Rich that, “Yes, she was sure!”
Praise God for His work in the hearts and lives of these young people!
