A Note from Suzie Willson. VBS Director
I’m sending a Jerusalem Marketplace full of thank you’s to all staff members, helpers, material seekers, donationers, and prayer givers for helping with our 2008 Vacation Bible School. Once again with all of your input our project was a great success. A special thank you to our church secretary, Peggy Smart, whose enthusiastic help, ideas, and flexability (even last minute drama part) was another vital key to our success. God Bless You All!
NOTE: A very special Thank You to Suzie Willson for her leadership, organization and planning of Vacation Bible School 2008. Without you, Suzie, none of this would have come to take place.
