Conversations about God with a boy from China

This is THE WEEK! The week I always looked forward to with great anticipation as a child every summer! VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS) Week!!!

This week has been Anthony's first time at VBS (having only been in the U.S. and our home for six months) and he is having a blast! But more than that, he is learning about Jesus thanks to the precious precious workers and friends who are pouring their hearts and love for Jesus into our children.

Anthony Praising God at VBS!

Today, I picked Anthony up from VBS and noticed that there was almost no sound coming from him in the back seat which is VERY unusual. I looked back and noticed he looked very serious so I asked him if he was tired. This is what he said in a very serious voice.

"No, I'm just thinking about Jesus."

 A few more minutes pass with Grace chattering away and the following conversation ensued:

Anthony: "What do you love, Mommy?"
Me: "I love God and Jesus and you, Grace, and Daddy."
Anthony: "I love God and Jesus."
Grace: "I love my panda!"
Anthony: "No, Grace this is serious love. You like your panda. I LOVE Jesus."

Heart . . . melting . . .amazement as I witness the Holy Spirit at work. . . so blessed and thankful. . .

Watching the Jesus Film in Chinese

When we got home, he immediately reminded me that he has asked me this morning if he could watch the Jesus film again in Chinese (we showed it to him about 5 months ago). He is watching it right now as I type this.

Please pray for his heart and understanding and for my baby Grace as well!

Blessings to all!
