I didn't see that coming ~



Well, I didn't see that coming....


...I happen upon some Chicago guests who were visiting the Foster Home last Friday...


...and after hearing why they are here, to put on their annual VBS week with the 3 local 3 Registered Churches here... 

    

I begged for 2 spots to be opened up for Gem and Jade to attend!
 

They said 'Yes' and the girls went for the whole week!


They had a great time, and made FRIENDS!!!


And we got introduced to the Registered Churches here, and we made some friends!


There are differences with the 'Registered Church' here, but that is for another post...


It was surreal experiencing something so familiar like a VBS.....
in a Chinese way...
(some funny differences)


But for all the differences....
I loved the similarities...


The singing, action songs, crafts, food! 


The message that Jesus IS the answer ~

  

God is the same yesturday, today & forever
in English, Mandarin & Cantonese


We never expected this gift this week,
this camp, these memories
God loves to give gifts to His children...

Matthew 7:11
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
