We had our first full day of VBS at Project Ruth today and what a blessing it was! They were hoping that 50 kids would show up so you can imagine our shock and surprise when we had at best guess somewhere around 68. They never all sat still long enough to get an accurate count. These kids love to sing and they sing very well. After lunch half of our group went to the village of Glina which is about 40 minutes outside of Bucharest, to lead a condensed version of the morning VBS and we had close to 30 children attend the afternoon. Once again we were enamored with the singing and the joy of Jesus in the hearts of these young children. What a blessing both of these groups were. While our seniors went to Glina our group of juniors along with Sara Kennedy and Larry Sumpter stayed and painted a hallway in the Ruth School. It was great to return and see that they had completed that project and what a difference a fresh coat of paint can make! I (Danny) was given the opportunity late in the morning to go into Bucharest and tour the Baptist Seminary of Bucharest. What a unique blessing it was to hear words like, "the WMU paid for this building" and to hear names of Virginia Baptists talked about with fondness because of contributions made and relationships that span decades of time as well as the Atlantic Ocean. I couldn't help but think of the passage in 1 Corinthians that says, "Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body" and how we all make up and support the body of Christ around the world. I'm proud to be a part of a cooperative program that gives to and supports missions and the work of Christ around the world. Working together we can accomplish so much more than on our own. I'm proud to be a part of a local church body that supports missions in the many ways in which Bonsack Baptist does from the GA's, RA's, Acteens, Baptist Young Men, Baptist Men and Women on Mission. I'm proud to say that we actively support missions in our community, state, nation and around the world. I'm proud to be a part of a church family that sends out and entrusts teenagers with the gospel message. Thank you to our Bonsack family for helping to make this experience possible.
