Vacation Bible School

This past Thursday and Friday our church held its annual Vacation Bible School for kids ages 3-12. We had a great turnout! There were 84 kids on Thursday and 97 kids on Friday. The theme for our camp was trusting in God. We started at 8:00am and went until 11:00am. There was lots of singing, games, Bible stories, the wordless book, skits, contests, snack time, and prizes. The kids did their skits on Daniel in the lion's den and the boy with the 5 loaves and 2 fish. We had lemonade and bread for the snack. During game time they had relay races. They also played some sort of game where there was two teams in a line and they had to hit the ball past the other line (kind of like red rover but replace the human trying to break through the line with a ball) and "tsismis" (the Tagalog name for the American game "telephone"). For the prizes, we were able to use the toys that had been donated to us from the U.S. We emptied 3 balikbayan boxes full of toys. The kids absolutely loved the prizes! All of the kids had a great time. It was a very busy yet very exciting 3 hours. There were 20 of our church members that were able to help us make this successful. It was also very encouraging to see around 70 of the kids come back on Sunday for Sunday School and Church. I pray that they will keep coming back... -God Bless-
