A kid from the 1st Grade Yellow team approached me before the kickoff of Vacation Bible School Day Two …
Cute Kid: Pastor Jeff! I went to the dentist.
Me: Oh dear. How did it go?
Cute Kid: I got these two bucks for ice cream money. But I brought it to put in the offering today.
Me: That just might be the greatest thing I hear all week.
After the opening rally began, I pulled this little gospel partner up on stage. He told his story to the collected group. I beamed with joy at this kid’s beginning steps of what I pray is a lifelong journey of following Jesus.
Ice cream money for Jesus. Talk about sacrifice. Talk about gospel partnership.
I pray that the kids who trample through our hallways this week grow to be men and women who are mature, devoted followers of Jesus Christ. I also pray that I never grow weary of investing in the lives of young ones for the sake of the gospel.

Awesome! No other word for it. Praying the week goes as well. It would be hard to top that!
Thanks for the prayers! Hard to top indeed!
