Kick off! Today was the first day of our Vacation Bible School at Saiwaicho Church. We feel absolutely blessed to be a part of God's plan to build relationships for Saiwaicho Church and the surrounding community through VBS. God is good and most worthy of our praise!
If I were to use one word to describe the first day, it would be "fun". There were smiles, laughter and excitement among the kids and volunteers. We welcomed 24 kids, 4th through 6th grades and we did crafts, a Bible story and song/verse, recreation and music in the morning. In the afternoon we ate lunch with the students and then did English games, choice time (where students could choose between arts & crafts, card games or dancing) and a large group activity involving water balloons. The large group activity was a great way to end a hot and humid day, though we spent most of our day indoors. Needless to say it was a full day but a very good day.
Tomorrow is our last day with this first group and then on Thursday and Friday we receive a new group of younger students. Please pray for us to continue to build relationships with the kids and the parents tomorrow. Please pray for unity and focus for our team. And please pray for opportunities to represent Jesus to the kids tomorrow.
Thanks for your love, support and prayers.
