The first day on the Canyon Springs Space Shuttle Mission was awesome!

Our crew of Pilots, Flight Engineers and Astronauts are the cream of the crop and made our mission today a total success!

The crew made their way to four different ports this morning: Craft, Snack/Rec, Music/Missions and Story. All of them centered around our job for the week, which is…TO SEARCH THE VISIBLE AND DISCOVER THE INVISIBLE!

Today’s story was about creation and God creating Adam and Eve. In the beginning, there was nothing … only God the Father, His Son Jesus, and God’s Holy Spirit. God created the world and everything in it, including man. God made man to enjoy relationships with one another and with Him. This lesson reflects today’s message: The God who created everything wants a relationship with us.

In light of doing what God created us to do, the campers (Starveyors) are invited to help the children of Rio Al Mar in Mexico by bringing donations to provide school uniforms for them. In this particular area of Tijuana, the children are not able to attend school if they do not have a uniform – and the uniforms cost $80! These families do not have much at all. Campers can bring donations in the envelope we sent home today (or any envelope) and turn them in to Ms. Pam when they get to VBS. At the end of each day we will count how many uniforms we were able to provide based on the campers’ donations.

Tomorrow is SUPER COLOR SPIRIT DAY!! Pilots, Flight Engineers and Astronauts should dress head to toe in their team color.

Hopefully you are all listening to the CD and learning the words to all the VBS songs!

Our memory verse for the week is:

Through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see, such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him.He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.” Colossians 1:16-17

Have your child work on memorizing this (long!) verse for a special prize tomorrow.

We are super excited to embark tomorrow on Day 2 of our mission aboard the Canyon Springs Space Shuttle!

Until tomorrow,
