Windy is Why We Do VBS.

From the Lifeway VBS Blog:

First Baptist Church, Danville, Arkansas, almost didn’t have a Vacation Bible School in 2001.  They decided to go ahead with VBS and they had 30 children make professions of faith!

On August 30, 2001, after VBS was over, the pastor got a call to go to the local hospital.  A nine-year-old girl named Windy had run out in front of an 18-wheeler traveling through town.  She was killed instantly.  Her brother and five sisters had gathered at the hospital. What do VBS and Windy’s death have to do with each other?  Windy was one of the 30 children who prayed to receive Christ in VBS.  At Windy’s funeral, her mother and a sister professed their faith and were later baptized.
