Last Day of VBS

Hey guys/girls its me again. Told you i would blog on friday.

Today was the last day of VBS. It was so hot that with most of the groups we did nothing. Absalutly nothing. Nothing, nada, zip. But we did sit on the front steps of the church. For lunch instead of having PBJ, we had hot dogs. After all of the kids had their hot dogs we played some water games. The first one, you had to take water from one bucket to the other using a dixie cup. The second game, included water baloons. They had to throw the baloons at a target that i was standing next to. I got wet. The third game was who could make the biggest splash with a water baloon. For the last game everyone got a baloon, the they threw the baloons at each other. The bucket that the baloons were in got dumped on me thanks to Brenda and Eric. I was soaking wet after that. Then we packed up all of the VBS stuff, and when that was done we went swimming (the same place as wensday). Then we came  back to the church. We played a few games of Mafia. Then we had the usual night meeting. I am so pumped about tomarrow. We are going to New York City tomarrow. We have to get up at 4:30 to 5:00, because we are leaving at 5:30 AM. We also got a new shirt for tomarrow. PRay said that we had to be in bed at 9:45. And lights out is at 10:00, so i am typing to you in the Boys sleeping quarters. It is time for me to log off.

Day 6 in Newark

Hey it is Ben here.

I know that i blogged last night but i have nothing to do right now. This morning i didn’t get much sleep. Today is the fourth day of VBS. The skit today consisted of Leah and David and Mr. Arnold. We thought they must of heard that Mr. Arnold was in the skit, so they tried to skip the skit. In the end, mostly everyone was there for the skit. Today for lunch was either cheese sandwich or PBJ. I decided to skip lunch.This afternoon we played Mafia. Mostly every time we played I was the first one to be killed by the mafia. When it started to get darker, and Eric and I were killed, we got up and started catching fireflies. We caught eight. Right now the people that will be sing songs in the other language are just finishing up. It is now time for me to log off.

Halfway through

Hello Friends,

I have never blogged before. So this is my first time. The time we have been here it has begun to feel more like home, day by day. Today was the third day of VBS. I do the games. We were going to play Crabsoocer. But when we tried that with our first group, it took them like the whole time to get the ball and score. So with the second group we played bsketball.(We did not have a hoop so we taped a hoola-hoop to the wall.)When we started to play the kids would hit the rim and it would slowly pull the tape away from the wall. By the time we got to the last group the hoop was mostly dead. After all of the groups are done we have tribal time and then we sing the Bibletime Marketplace songs. After that we had lunch. The lunches today were tuna sandwiches and PBJ sandwiches.  After all of the kids left we went swimming at a person from the church’s house. We started out by making a wirlpool.Sooner or later every one started to get out of the pool. Then we had dinner. Then we started home. Today we had such a long day that we didn’t have a big meeting tonight. PRay read the blogs and all of the comments and it was good to here that all of you care about us. I will try to blog on friday, but for now, blog to you later.

P.S. Just so you know,(Abby and Amiela)Josh and i were the ones to get the mowhawks!
