Put on your armor!
November 16th marked the beginning of VBS 2014!! It was 4 days of crazy games, great crafts, memorizing scripture, discovering God’s desire for kids and the protection that comes with using the spiritual armor God gives us. These kids have ENERGY!!
Kids here LOVE to dance. We started each morning with songs of worship that the kids themselves lead. Complete with a dance circle and an 8 year old fabulous drummer using just a plastic jug and a stick. Amazing.
During bible study the kids learned about a piece of armor each day and how they can apply it to their lives. The verse they memorized was Ephesians 6:11 which says “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” These children face many complicated challenges, like anyone and to give them the truth of the Word and the promises of God is the most important part of VBS!
Although, the games, food and crafts provided great entertainment and a way to play together. Always a game favorite is “Wet Sponge war” and “Tug of war”.
And in crafts they made their own belt of Truth and a special Armor of God name tag and a big pile of sudza each to finish off the day.
It makes for a great 4 days and we hold on to the truth of God when He says “Train a child in the way he should go and when he is older he will not turn from it” A very encouraging reminder and we are blessed here at the mission to be a part of it.
We are definitely looking forward to next year.
