Virginia Voices International
Lost in Vegas ~ Las Vegas, NV July 2009
This mission trip opened the eyes of our hearts to the needs of so many hungry for the manna of God's word. After having worked side-by-side with the teachers at the evening Vacation Bible School for children and adults as well as internationals, we concluded with daily concerts.
During the day God opened the door for us to perform at the secular Reed Whipple Cultural Center for Dance and the West Las Vegas Library Theater of Performing and Visual Arts Camp for Kids where we had the opportunity to answer questions and share Christ's impact on Virginia Voices and His enormous love for each of them. The teachers and students of the Theater were so taken by our music they wanted to give something back thus they performed a snippet of the show they were rehearsing.
God still had a task for us to accomplish as we arrived at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission where we worked non-stop in 105 degree heat. After a full day of serving those less fortunate than us, we prepared for our evening concert knowing God's work was not yet done. The Chapel was full of those that were required to be there and those that chose to be there. As we began to sing, God was glorified as hearts were softened, hands were raised, and praises were called out. We lost count of the number of people that came forward to rededicate their lives and profess their faith in Christ.
