VBS 2012

Last week was our annual Vacation Bible School (VBS). The theme this year was "Gold Adventure...Discovering the Rock of Ages". Even though the temperature was a scorching 95°+ throughout the week, we averaged 133 kids per day, with a grand total of 203 different kids coming through our doors to attend VBS this year. We are so thankful that each and every one of them were able to hear the clear gospel. We are also grateful for the 26 volunteers from our church who helped make this program a success.

We had a busy week full of different crafts, water games, obstacle courses, memory verses, snacks, singing, and Bible lessons. We even had a "store" in which the kids received gold coins for memorizing Bible verses, bringing friends, and for being the best listener for the day. They were able to exchange the gold coins for candy or special prizes that were graciously donated to our ministry by people from the States. The kids really enjoyed VBS this summer and many were asking if we can do it again next week. Some parents even asked if we can do it for a month! 

We also praise the Lord that following our week-long VBS, 121 kids came back to church this past Sunday! We thank you for all your prayers for us and our ministry. We give glory to the Lord for the success of our VBS and we ask that you continue to pray for these kids.

God Bless,

-Ptr. Matt & Rina-
