And so it began love is the key…
and we soon found out we needed this above all as we entered
our first day of Daily Vacation Bible School (D. V. B. S). Into
six group: beginners, primary, junior boys/girls, intermediate
boy/girls, senior high boys/ girls…It was just a get to
know you session and introducing of the theme: Jehovah Rohi-
the Lord our shepherd.
I was given the opportunity to bring the
first lesson and therefore the focus was on God being the
Shepherd. Recognizing that the shepherd has a voice, we His
sheep ought to obey. We then went to our individual classes,
my class being intermediate- 12- 14 girls.
After the dismissal of the first
session of D. V. B. S. we had our lunch and we were off for
Combing the street of Barrouallie
proved to be a very rewarding experience for us all. For those
who have not yet traveled that road, and even those who have.
All we have is now to do all we can now, and
armed with bibles, tracks, and a pleasant Barbadian smile
and accent we went forth to advance God’s Kingdom.
Monday evening devotion challenged us above to be
in unity. We observe why we did not unite due to our pride, jealousy,
envy or fear. Sis. Stephanie then encouraged us to have a recognized
need to have unity in our speech, communication and purpose. For
it was not about us, but unity was about God’s will.

Devotions encouraged us to be strong
in the Lord as we entered day two of D.V.B.S. Faced with this
confession that we stand in need of God’s strength we
entered in. D.V.B.S was it’s usual passing with our focus
being on Jesus- Jehovah Rohi- The Lord who provides-
I was able then to share with the class some
of my own personal testimonies of how God provided for me, and
how He can provide for them. Then we were off to get ready for
the evening session.
Ministry was the call as Brother Michael admonished
us it was time to change St. John 5: 6. Jesus came on the scene:
he recognized his condition, initiated a conversation, listened
to his confession, exhibited compassion and completed his transition.
So IIOM ministered I am a friend of God, (this became our theme
song), and as the night progressed one thing was evident the spirit
of the Lord was moving as we came forward to be prayed for and to
confess and declare our healing.
Indeed signs and wonders will follow, back at base, not but a stone
throw away from the church, Brother Travis admonished us to desire
1 John 3:8b that which was written…. To see God magnified
