VBE Continued


I knew there would be more about VBE to type out.  Friday was an exhausting fun day.  One of my boys took a great interest in the Bible verses we discussed and was really excited when I let him use the Bible app on my phone since he didn’t get to look at a Bible of his own.  He just read and read and read.  It was so wonderful.  And then, to top it all off!  I had this trio of boys at the beginning of the week all I could think was “These kids are going to be such a handful.”  And they were!  But they were so wonderful too.  At the end of the week, one of those boys won the bike drawing.  And my preacher couldn’t even keep his name straight, which we thought was hilarious, but I promise you, I”ll never forget his name.  When his name was called he ran up and his face was so lit up with excitement.  Who knew what was going to ask next.  He tugged on Paul’s sleeve and motioned him to lean over so he could tell him something.  All I could think was “What is this boy gonna do!”  Well then Paul announced that this sweet boy was giving his cousin (who was also at VBE) the bike because he didn’t have one!  And then I burst into tears.

After VBE was over, I gave him a hug and I told him that he was such a blessing to me and that I learned A LOT from him and that I prayed for him everyday.  He kinda teared up and we hugged.  I’m going to miss him.  I hope I get to see him soon!  I hope I get to see all of them soon!  I can’t wait to do VBE again next year!
