Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell all of his wonderful works. ~ Psalm 105: 2
We knew Day Camp VBS was a success when toward the end of the week the children started singing Kum Ba Yah (funky, fresh version) unprompted as they were just sitting around together. Spontaneous, "Hey, let's sing that cool song! You start; we'll echo. Everyone stand up and do the motions." There were many other signs of success, yes, but that was a great moment and affirmation of God's Word going out and God's love being shared. Praise the Lord! (chicka-ha!) --Ruth Gates
