A small group of us from church went to Shiprock, New Mexico to have VBS with the kiddos out there on the res. It was a great time of teaching, learning, and exploring for us!
VBS was in the mornings. In the evenings we prepared for the next days lessons and such, then we had a good time together swimming and exploring the four corner area. I learned my boy is not a scaredy pants and that my girls are! lol
Our family at Arch Rock!
There was certainly a lot of cool stuff to see out in this area! We truly serve an amazing God, His creation is so vast. We have been in around 40 (I need to count it up again) states.
It is different, and yet beautiful everywhere you go.
A little scenery out my window as we traveled.
We needed to get out and stretch our legs, why not here in front of this cool sign!
Our destination and our purpose! Shiprock, NM ~ Navajo Baptist Temple ~ VBS
This was the last day, some of the kids had already gone home when we thought to take
this photo. We had between 35-55 kids each day. Such a good turn out
and such a blessing to be a part of.
My girls stuck together like glue, but they had a great time!
Asa on the other hand loves making new friends and fit right in quickly!
This was a bitter sweet trip for us. We took this photo at the four corners. Sister Henning, a dear friend, is on the right. She took care of the craft class at VBS. Only three short days of returning from our trip, she went home to heaven. We miss her so much! I think back and wish we had known those were going to be our last days with her. She was such rock to me. Like a grandma to my kids. It is just a reminder that life is but a vapor, we all have an appointed time to die. Only one life 'twill soon be past. Only what's done for Christ will last.
