Today I arrived at the village with mixed feelings; this was our last day of VBS here in Malawi! I was excited to have another opportunity to share God's Word with the children but I was also sad that this was my last day working with these precious children. Also, to be honest, I was a bit tired this morning from all the prep and teaching work we had done over the past two weeks.

That feeling of fatigue suddenly evaporated as we pulled up to the church and the children came running out of the church towards us. They started singing and clapping, with huge smiles on their faces. They were so excited to see us again and to learn about God and praise Him. What an awesome way to start my day! I couldn't wait to get out of the van and start singing with the children. 

Today I was in charge of the singing which I always enjoy doing over here. Most of the children sing so loudly and with such enthusiasm. It's neat to see the children sing their upbeat Chichewa songs that they know so well. It's also neat to see the children catch on to the English songs I taught them such as "I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart! Where? Down in my heart!" 

As we left for the day, the children began singing a thank-you song. I can't think of a better way to spend a morning than with these precious children singing their hearts out as they praise God!
