Week 28


A typical pre-outreach pep-talk.


Everything seemed to run like clockwork during pick up.

After arriving back at the church with the kids, and sending them off to class, I made my way into the sanctuary where service was already taking place.

I took my usual Sunday morning seat at the back of the sanctuary (since I would have to leave early to take kids home)......

scanned the crowd (because I am nosy like that)....

and could not believe how many parents of bus kids were there.

Now, this was just an ordinary Sunday morning service.

No special performance.

No promotions being advertised.

Not a Spanish service weekend.

and I was amazed....

as I realized that this is a regular occurrence at our church.

Today bus ministry reminded me of the story of the Little Engine that Could....just when you get discouraged and feel like giving get a little glimpse of hope...and find the strength to just keep going....

Week 27

Outreach was canceled today due to Vacation Bible School.

The bus went out Wednesday night, Thursday night, Friday night and Saturday morning to pick up kids that were a part of this years event.

It was great to see bus parents hanging out at the conclusion of Saturday's water fight


The amazing set:

Our AWESOME Children's Pastor:
The performance:

I sat on the second row during the performance, feeling (once again) like a proud mama watching "my kids".

Week 26

Outreach was canceled so that the Blue Bomber Crew could do this:

to raise money so that 56 bus kids...

could be a part of this:


Did you know that when you come to a school bus stopped on either side of a road with the bus's red lights flashing, you must stop, and remain stopped as long as the red lights are flashing?

Two people on the road this morning did NOT know this.

Almost causing what would have been horrific accidents with two kids and a Bus Worker. (so thankful for God's protection)

Therefore I am going to be purchasing two of these:

and two of these (to be installed on our bus):

and maybe a few of these:

So we can look like this:
