An Incredible End

August 20, 2011

Yesterday we headed north from Hadley, after concluding our final week of VBS for the summer.  The week was truly Incredible.   Each night was well attended, with first time visitors added nearly every night.  The teachers and workers did an excellent job.  For Ruth and I it was definitely the easiest week of VBS we had all summer.  At times we felt almost unnecessary.  We are grateful for the chance to work with the wonderful folks at the Baptist Church of Hadley. We were also thrilled to see the kids work very hard on their memory verses.  I know several kids said 40 or more memory verses during the week, plus others that said over 30 verses.  Most incredibly, three children made professions of salvation during the week.

The Hadley VBS was our last for the summer.  It trruly was an incredible summer, God gave us many great opportunities to minister His Word to the hearts and minds of boys and girls. I believe we saw His work unfold throughout the summer.  As we move into the fall and other ministry endeavors we look forward to the incredible things God is going to do.

VBS wasn’t that only thing that came to an incredible end this weekend.  On the way back to the UP from Hadley, our Subaru finally gave up the ghost.  On I-75, with a clunk, the car suddenly lost power.  The signs of a blown engine were unmistakable.  We got a tow to a nearby town while we tried to figure out exactly what to do.  In God’s incredible providence, a car dealer from Manistique was in the area where we broke down and needed a driver to take a car to Manistique.  All in one afternoon, we were able to find a scrap dealer who bought the Subaru, transfer our stuff into the loaner car and make it safely back home last night.  We rejoice that God provided so incredibly for us with that Subaru, that He provided incredibly for us in our sudden necessity, that He provided a vehicle we can use while we look for a new car and we are looking forward to seeing how God will provide incredibly for our transportation needs in the days ahead.
