I got to go to New York at the end of June with my church and we were able to lead two VBS camps at two churches in New York. It was an awesome time filled with new information on how unreached the people of New York are from God. I enjoyed the trip so much and am so glad I was able to go and be a light to others in New York.
Day 1: Saturday, June 22
We headed out to New York. We had over 50 people from my church go, so the plane ride was very entertaining with lots of laughs, games and bathroom breaks. I kid you not, every time I looked at the bathroom someone from my church was in line to use it.
Day 2: Sunday, June 23
On Sunday I had the opportunity to lead a church in worship. I got to see first hand that not many people go to church in New York. It was sad to see that although I go to a church that averages a couple thousands each Sunday, New York churches have from 5-200 people in attendance.
Day 3: Monday, June 24
We had our first day of VBS. Since most people don't go to church and we had no kids signed up we expected 5-7 kids. We got 17! It was so awesome and an answer to prayer to have so many kids.
This is my crazy face right before we started VBS for the day.
The end of part 1 of my trip to New York. I would love it if you continued to pray for Crossroads Church, Discover Church, and Ecclessia Church as they continue to be a light for God in a place where there are so many unreached people. Also I would love it if you prayed for Erin and Dylan the girl and boy who accepted Jesus into their hearts at VBS.
