If you plan it, they will come...or not

The different events we have been involved in during our three months at Huntington Ridge have all been pretty well attended. We had no reason to think tennis camp and Vacation Bible School would be any different.
Both events were scheduled to run Monday, July 28, through Thursday, July 31. Then no one showed up for tennis camp Monday or Tuesday. But two precious little girls came to VBS.

Tim had several of the HR children playing tennis earlier in the summer. He hopes to reacquaint them with the sport this fall.
The VBS program consists of crafts, Bible stories and discussion, and a snack. The girls seemed to enjoy the one-on-one attention Monday. We were so pleased when they both returned on Tuesday. It has been an exciting privilege to introduce them to the beloved stories of Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, David and Goliath, and Jonah and the whale.Our friend Sherry and her handsome baby boy, Wesley, came to help out on Tuesday. Sherry used to live at Huntington Ridge, and she continues to be involved in the community through the after-school program.One thing about dealing with matters of eternity. It’s not the numbers that count, it’s one’s faithfulness in carrying out the Great Commission. Please pray that these children will come to know Jesus as Savior as we continue in Vacation Bible School and beyond.
