I just have to say that I had so much fun doing VBS this year. This is the first time Preston and I did it together - He either did it and I worked behind the scenes or, like last year, I was in it and he helped watch the kids during all of the long rehearsals that start in April while the kids are still in school. We bit the bullet this year and both participated. WHAT A BLESSING!!!! We have some incredible people at Altamesa...Jennifer & Brian, Brad & Brenda, Joannie & Kelly, Michael & Courtney, Valisa & Aaron, Bobby & Jennifer, Katie & Stephen, Colleen & Alex, Raymond & the Praise Team...They are all the hard-working, humble backbone of this production....So much goes into it and they poured their heart and soul into every detail....I can't leave out Brittney either - what a trooper...She is definitely earning her intern paycheck this summer!!!! I know that everyone involved did this out of love and because we just have so much fun. It was great to see a lot of our young college singles get involved (Whitney, Josh, Matt D, Chester, Adam & Jonathan). I was really touched tonight when Chester (very shy and quiet) got up in front of the entire cast and poured his heart out to us...thanking us for letting him be a part of such a wonderful thing... We also got to make some new friends...Lloyd and Julia (precious), Steve & Linda (awesome), Whitney & Lisa (my fellow palm trees) ...Young and old - veterans and newbies...Robb, Keith, Jimmy, Pam, Teresa, Matt B, Meredith Browning, Kelby, Danny (!) and of course...Andrew Barker...We had it all - and it worked!!!! Can't wait for next year!
