EE 7/10/12

    This week we are not going out because Calvary Chapel Lake Villa is having it’s annual Vacation Bible School. My wife, daughter, and I are watching my nephews at the VBS. Kyle is having a blast and Cody is actually participating in the puppet show as is my daughter Amanda.

    I am very excited about this years VBS because the church is going to use VBS as an ongoing outreach. So often VBS is used to introduce children to God’s Word and to have fun. These are wonderful things. If we can lead some children to Christ that is Fantastic. But once VBS is over sometimes that is the end of it until next year. That should not happen, and will not this year.

    Parents bring their children to VBS and allow the church to teach their children. This is the perfect opportunity to visit with the parents and talk about spiritual matters with them. If a parent has allowed their child to come to VBS it means they are not hostile to church even if they never attend. They are not hostile to talking about God even if they do not have a relationship with Him. This is why I love EE. It is not about attending a class on evangelism. It is about actually going to visit people who have visited the church and sharing the Love of Christ with them, while at the same time making disciples who make disciples who make disciples.

    Our visitation/evangelism team(s) will be visiting the parents of VBS attenders for the weeks ahead. Please pray for us that God allows us to harvest. The fields are white, the workers are few.
