FACES & PLACES

The VBS season is upon us! To kick off the Summer Mission

A

Mobil Tour for Vision 2 Hear, we were able to share some of our WAVE songs with the kids from Stockbridge United Methodist Church. With about 200 kids between the morning and evening gatherings, the kids learned some classics of V2H like the Lawnmower Dance and Shark Song. V2H also helped them choreograph a new song

Thankfully, after a ride in the ambulance and a couple hours in ER, it was concluded that no one was seriously hurt and all were released. As the insurance dealt with the quotes on the car etc, they deemed the repairs more than the value of the car and gave me a check, which God used in a big time way to help pay for our way to Honduras and El Salvador this summer! As much as we loved the KIA and have fond memories, we are very thankful that no one was hurt and that God used that vehicle to serve us one more time by getting us to Central America this

feelings about Friday The 13th but we will remember it for the car wreck that killed the KIA.

Another V2H Graduate

It was a rainy afternoon and the guys had gotten home from school. However, a friend had come home with them and they were offering him a ride to his house, which was fine, of course.

Random Pictures A) Victoria Jimenez, long time V2H’er and friend. B) Notice the passenger seat is bent from the impact of the wreck! C) Dawson Doremus all painted up at VBS

But about 5 minutes after they left the house, I got a call from Buddy saying “we’ve been in an accident...someone hit us from behind but we are all ok.” I told him I was on the way and made my way. Once I got close, the fire and rescue and cops were already there, with traffic backing up on the little two lane road. As I ran up on the guys, they were all out of the car, with the other guy who had hit them standing in the rain, trying to figure out exactly what happened.

Victoria Jimenez from Palmetto Senior High School graduates this Friday, June 10 and then heads directly to meet our Mobil Summer Tour Team in Honduras. This is no surprise though, because this is the kind of servant heart Victoria has had all along. Among some of our first signers in the Florida area, Vicki has been as faithful as they come! She has served with us not only in Florida but been with us previously in Honduras and El Salvador. She has been an outstanding student leader on WAVE and a tremendous servant at George Camp. We have been blessed immensely to have had her on our teams and leadership! Congrats Vicki!


George Camp 2011

History of George Camps The summer of 2002 is when “George Camps” began. The camp grew out of the outrageous sessions George used to have with students at Palmetto Bay Academy (now known as Christ Fellowship Academy) during Spiritual Emphasis Weeks. After the second year of speaking at PBA (CF), George hosted the first George Camp and the rest is history in the making.

Universe: All-Stars This yearʼs theme for George Camp is UNIVERSE ALL-STARS. Our goal for camp is to help children know how they can be lights for Jesus. As we dive into this yearʼs camp, we will explore the truth about being Godʼs Light and allowing His Light to shine through us! From the way we talk to each other to the way we serve one another, we can all be stars for Jesus! Join us for a week you wonʼt forget and Be A Star in the Universe! Then you will be innocent and without any wrong. You will be God's children without fault. But you are living with crooked and mean people all around you, among whom you shine like stars in the dark world. Philippians 2:15 15

[3]

George Camps are all about crazy, messy, wild and fun times but also about singing, praising and learning about Jesus. During George Camps, children from 3rd grade through 6th grade learn Bible verses, have meaningful lessons, and develop life-long memories that change and shape their lives forever!
