Update from Virgin Islands

I talked to Jason McNair, our student minister, today by phone from St. Thomas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, where he is leading a youth mission trip from our church.
Jason says that they have 47 kids in VBS at one location, and 39 kids at another VBS, that our group is leading simultaneously. He said that 6 children have accepted Christ and have been counseled by the local pastor! They were excited to get Bibles that have the "ABC's of Salvation" in them, and Jason plans to ship them additional copies of these Bibles.
Jason said that they painted five large rooms at the mission and they completely remodeled the nursery.
We had heard reports that the girls had insect bites from chiggers, but Jason said that was incorrect, that it was mosquito bites, but they were recovering from that pretty well.
They will be returning to Rincon late on Friday night. Pray for their safe return.
