“Go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Teach them to observe all things that I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:19-20

We believe that we have been called to use the gifts God has given us to reach unbelievers for Him and to encourage, and build up His Church.

LOL at North Baldwin Baptist Church

It's always special when my young jugglers of the LOL Vauville Show get to do a Sunday service at a local church.  This year I have a pastor's kid in my class, and his mom is my classroom aide, so setting up a church gig was remarkably easy!  On Sunday morning last weekend, 17 of the 20 tweens and teens in my middle school class decended on the North Baldwin Baptist Church to present an hour long program for their morning church service.  This was one of the best shows of the year.

Liam, whose dad is the pastor there, did a fine job with his three ball juggling, but he really brought the house down as he played the part of the groom in our skit "Me".  He is also one of five students who sing a beautiful version of "The Lord's Prayer".  Autumn, Isaiah, Avery and Killian make up the rest of the quintet, and, when Autumn's mom posted the song on facebook that afternoon, it blew up with 'likes'.  

Katherine did a smooth, moving presentation of an illusion representing the resurrection, Mary did her usual hilarious shackles escape routine, and Bebe and Chloe stepped up to their new roles as narrators with near perfection.Myla performed club juggling for the first time without a drop, and Ellie juggled machetes brilliantly.  Yet when it was time to be serious, they pulled that off, too.  A couple of LOL mom's seein the show for the first time shared that "I Want to Know What Love Is" and "Beautiful, Scandalous Night" moved them to tears.

Of course, LOL is as much about the kids learning as it is the audience.  So when the service was over, and Pastor Will announced there was a pot luck lunch in the fellowship hall, I blessed the kids with  a lesson in humility.  They needed to stay upstairs and pick up the props before they could get in line to eat.  This group is so good: there was not a single complaint.  And, in turn, we were amazingly blessed as the congregation took up an offering that will cover the entire cost of our four day spring trip.  All in all, it was a great morning.
