Bergen report on this week’s VBS

Despite an unusual hot summer, and me fighting kidney stones, we had an awesome week!!  Thank you for your prayers.  Our high attendance in the children’s program was 35.  The children heard how Jesus called Peter and how He loved him even and was able to use Peter even when Peter denied Him.  They also were told how this same Jesus calls and loves each of them.  We had a BBQ on Thursday evening and invited all the families to it, there were at least 80 there, it was difficult to get an exact count with everyone running around.  Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Attached please find a picture we took on one of the mornings.

On the Monday, Wednesday and Friday evening we ran a teen program.  The high there was 26 with several teens coming back that had not been to youth group for some time.  We had 6 new ones who are just going into high school, so that gives us something to build upon.

Please continue to pray for Brechin Baptist!  There are so many encouraging things going on here!!  Pray for my health, kidney stones are NOT fun!!  I had to spend two whole days in bed this week because of the pain, I am thankful for a great church who continued on without me!

Thank you for your prayers,

Jon Bergen
