It wasn't the hottest part of summer, but group of children gathered under the Texas sun to let their light shine.
We had a ball, a soccer ball that is. The children were taught the basics of soccer and enjoyed fun in the sun, but when it got hot they took a refreshment break. We gathered around the Son in an air-conditioned church and served ice cold water, and the Water of Life.
We learned about Jesus, the light of the world, and how he shines his love into our hearts. We also came to know that we are mirrors, reflecting his love. Like a light bouncing off a disco ball, Jesus love reaches the world through us. Because of our Savior, we have the privilege to let our light shine. The kids learned of Christ,and we got a kick out of teaching them.

I have so much joy in my heart after completing this mission trip. I was amazed at how these children used their God-given talents to learn and play soccer throughout the week. Some children played soccer before the camp, so those who weren't quite so far ahead in the sport were helped by those who knew a little bit more about it. I don't play soccer myself, I do know how to coach soccer, but it was so precious to see the children helping each other.
We had devotions and crafts everyday that the children would work on, so that they may also fill their hearts and minds with God's Word, and know the great things that Christ has done for us.
I had such a great experience working with Kingdom Workers spreading the gospel, and will definitely do it again! Thank you for everything!

Thank you for the wonderful experience to go to different places to share the Word of God with many people. I really enjoyed this opportunity and it helped me have a clearer understanding of when God said to go and preach the good news to all. I am very glad to have gone on this trip.
Working with all of these people opened my eyes to a whole new experience. This trip taught me that what I do really can affect other people.
We had one girl and her family come to the VBS and they were not members of the church. She was very shy but she tried her best to fit in with the other children. The first day she came, I sat down and talked with her and tried to warm her up to the new crowd. She was very sweet. By the end of the week, her parents had decided that they wanted to become members of the church and they were looking for information about the church. When I heard about this, it brought a smile to my face. I had been a part of bringing another family to the Truth.
This was a good experience for me and I am very glad that I had the opportunity to go.
