Every summer a new adventure into the study of Jesus happens at VBS. This year many jumped into the wild to learn of the amazing encounters of Jesus. We love that children gather together to have fun and most of all to learn about the amazing, life giving story of the gospel. We have also seen how children can open their hearts and give so that this gospel can be shared with others. Each year we receive numerous gifts from churches that collected money during VBS, this year is no different.
One church, Highland Baptist Church, Clovis, invited our Area Administrator, Serenity Richard, to come early in the week and share about NMBCH. They then collected money each day to send to the children's home. On Thursday, June 25, they asked Serenity to return so that they could present a check with the total amount collected in just a few days. What a surprise to see that this group of children collected nearly $300.00 for the children's home.
Thank you to children at Highland Baptist Church, Clovis and all the other churches that have thought of NM Baptist Children's Home & Family Ministries during their Vacation Bible School.
