Last year we began to pray and to seek God’s face. We sensed God’s good hand in leading us to the Eastern Shore of Virginia. With much prayer and waiting in faith, our God supplied us with eighteen team members, three Spanish translators, the funds, and the love to head north.
The teams divided to accomplish more. The two teams were involved in VBS at Red Bank Baptist Church in Marionsville, Va., and the VBS Migrant ministry in Cheriton, Va. Five days of sharing the love of Christ through song, teaching, giving, and testifying were very rewarding to all.
Two mornings we headed up to Ocean City to work with a ministry called Son`Spot and with Randy Hoffman, a Sand Artist. The team spoke with many European Students who would drop in for breakfast supplied by Gary and Cathy of the Sonspot Ministries. We spoke with them and learned of their cultures and also shared the Lord Jesus with them. Many were receptive. We also distributed several hundred gospel tracts up and down the boardwalk.
On Thursday the team shoveled and displaced sand and built a foundation for Randy Hoffman to form his new sand art. The other team prepared food for an evangelistic dinner that afternoon.
Check out the Sand Art on RandyHoffman.com. While you are looking that up, view the ministry of Sonspot.org/. It was a lot of work but each night we laid our heads down in quiet assurance that God was meeting needs in us and through us.
