This past Saturday, I had opportunity to hear many stories - each a memory of past "Bazaars". Our former principal, Mr. Ray Vander Ploeg, shared how they let balloons go from the roof with notes attached, requesting those who found them to send letters back. One farmer in the U.S. wrote that he found the balloon while working in his field - and how he too sent his children to a Christian school. A lady shared how she used to come with her Oma to sell flowers and now was excited to be a vendor herself. Others shared how they have never missed a year even though their children and grandchildren have graduated. When I came home, excited stories came from my own children - what was in their Bizarre bottle, who they saw, and who they raced in the obstacle course. What touched me most was how each story was woven into Woodstock Christian's blessed history - but more importantly, how each one reflected God's story. Our theme verse , "Let the Redeemed of the Lord tell God's story" (Psalm 107:1-2), kept going through my head that day. Yes, God's story is being told over and over! He is so faithful to WCS! We were in awe of all who came together to be part of another successful day, building community and raising funds for Christian Education.
Thank you to all. To God be the Glory!
