Fourth in a five part drama with a military boot camp theme, excellent for VBS.
Camp Follow-You is underway and everything had better be just right! . . Except that there is a new recruit named Chester Romeo Hunkalunk from Goose Feathers, Iowa who is, well, different.
In the first segment we find out how this . . group . . will show their love and support for each other. (John 13:35)
In the second segment we find the importance of trust. (Proverbs 3:5)
In the third segment we learn of the place, and the power, of prayer. (James 5:16)
In this fourth segment we find out the importance of obeying. (John 14:15)
In the final (fifth) segment the soldiers recap what they have learned.
Each segment has a “marching” song written to the theme.
