I found this in the e-newsletter from the BGCT Missions Team. If you’re wanting to take a mission trip this summer, why not lead a VBS in the Valley? Here’s a note from Director of Missions Daniel Rangel:
I am sure that most of us are familiar with Luke 5:1-11 the biblical passage of the great catch of fish. The part of the passage that really gets my attention is the part that says the catch of fish was so great that they had to ask for help from another boat to get them. Then both boats were so filled with the fish that they began to sink. (vs. 6-7)
The Passage goes on to say that all the people were “astonished” at the catch. Jesus calmed them by saying “Do not be afraid, From now on you will catch men”.
Every summer we have hundreds of Summer missionaries come and help us with VBS. Yet every year we can only fill about half of the 30-40 requests that we receive requesting VBS groups. We are asking for your help to bring in this “big catch”. Summer VBS is probably the biggest evangelistic event we have in the Valley every year. Let’s work together to answer the call for help. God wants to bless us with a “big catch”.
Trust in Him,
