...the harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few
Our annual week of VBS finished last Friday, July 6th. After the record turn-out last year (350-400 children) when the team from Ballymena FPC was here, we realised we were going to have to actively limit the numbers this year since we had fewer helpers. So we gave out fewer invitations and asked the children to come on the Saturday before VBS to register and get an ID card. We ended up with 121 children registered and about 105 attending each day, which was very manageable.

It was encouraging again to see most of the children giving good attention to the lessons, including some older teenagers who come every year just for VBS. Pray that these older kids especially would soon be saved and would be kept by God’s grace from the temptations that they face daily. We believe that a few of them perhaps are saved and would value your prayers that they will grow in grace and even that they would come to our youth Sunday School class.

We appreciate your help in prayer and the help of several young people from the Paynesville congregation who came along each day. A special thanks goes to Matthew Graham from Mourne FPC in Kilkeel, Northern Ireland, who came over to Liberia for two weeks specifically to help with VBS. Click here for more photos

Keep me in prayer as I leave Liberia on 11th July for 7 months of furlough. I will be doing deputation in the USA and Canada this summer and then moving on to Northern Ireland later in the year DV. Also, please pray for Mr. DiCanio and others who will be carrying on with the work here in my absence.
