​Day 3 - VBS in Kancab, Yucatán, Mexico

by Kemo Jones, Director of Youth Outreach

I can't end today without thanking all of you who donated shirts for our Vacation Bible School and tied a knot for the prayer squares. Because of your help we were able to see God move in big ways.

We used the shirts to make cool bags, but there was something particularly special about the prayer quilt squares. Dr. Clara Herrera beautifully explained the significance of the prayer squares and told this community that their brothers and sisters in Roswell, GA are praying for them. As David and I prayed for the children in English and they prayed for us in Spanish, we all were moved to tears by the Holy Spirit. Praise God for the amazing things he's doing.

Later that day, over 25 children came to the church to do crafts and sing about God's goodness. Angelica, one of the pastors, led the kids in a Bible study, and when we finished VBS, many of the kids went home but a few stayed with us to play soccer.

It was a lot of fun to see God use us for his glory.
