Wonder Working Power! That sums up the incredible effort the First Pres kids put forth for Day One of VBS Haines. From preschool to elementary crews, the youth from Anchorage worked to bring a little bit of Power to their charges.
Comments from parents, Crew Leaders, and the Director were all about a smooth first day, thanks to our kids.
After a hearty lunch at the Haines public playground and a little time to blow off some steam, we were treated to an afternoon of perspective of how we all fit in Nature's grand scheme at the Bald Eagle Foundation. The kids fixed their own dinner of spaghetti and salad, then piled in vans to go bear "hunting" at a local fish wier outside of town. No bears, but saw an eagle on a nest, some goats, and a lot of beautiful scenery.
Tomorrow we are working at Rainbow Glacier Camp after VBS, and will fix our dinner over an open fire. Continue to pray for these young people as the week continues; that their energy level stays high (so far, so good), and their spiritual path becomes clear as they work with these children. We are having some difficulty uploading photos, so stay tuned for some pictures!
