What Goes Around

Perhaps you've heard the old saying:  What goes around comes around?  Quite a few years ago we met a special couple because of the island camp.  They had met on the island and after they were married, they traveled back once a year to participate in retreats.  One was an American and the other a Brazilian.  They had married and moved to the U.S.A.

Their shirts say, "I met my spouse on Treasure Island."

This year when they made their annual trek to Brazil they came to "see" us in spite of our lack of an island camp.  They came with a whole team of workers and helped our congregation realize a three-day Vacation Bible School here in Sobradinho.  Since there has been no island, they've come back each year since and participated in missions work.  We were very glad to be included on their agenda this year!

We had a great event with lots of participation on the part of our young people and some of our adults as well.  Each day we saw more than 50 children present.  We hope to see some of these back for our regular afternoon Sunday school and other church activities.

A very special THANK-YOU to Dan and Suzy Ullman and all of their gang from Faith Baptist Church of upper New York state!
