We started off our three day Vacation Bible School in Dieciocho de Marzo with a full house of kids and adult leaders on Wednesday, August 17th. It is at Pastor Jose’s church in the small and economically poor community located about ten miles northwest of Galeana. True Path Ministry is working with Pastor Jose and his church members to give the kids a fun, Christ-centered event. Yessi, who also teaches at our weekly kid’s club, is the teacher for VBS. She has a jam-packed schedule of games, Bible lessons, plays, crafts and snacks. The kids were very excited and had a blast on day one.
We finalized our decision to hold the event on Sunday and we needed a way to get the word out in the community. Our solution was to strap a loud speaker on the top of our newly acquired ministry Suburban. We drove around with Pastor Jose “broadcasting” the details of VBS and inviting all the kids to come. “Our unusual approach worked well, we had a very good turnout,” said Stephen. “The most important thing is that the kids will become closer to Jesus during this VBS.”
