Our church once again hosted a week of vacation Bible school. As director of the children’s department, I administrate the week of morning meetings. Each day began with singing on the church sound system (designed to attract kids). Then we learned about a Bible verse and memorized it in two languages.
After that, the kids separate into three different age groups. They travel around the school yard and learn a missionary story, a Bible story, and make a craft item. Then there is recess, a very small snack, and some more singing. At the end, bigger kids hang around for a Bible quiz competition.
I’m thankful that four young ladies in our congregation take on the role of teaching every single lesson. They are all products of the school and church. (They were young students when I arrived here in 1992.) How satisfying now to see them teaching their younger neighbors, cousins, nephews, and strangers.
The curriculum is prepared by the Baptist church in Haiti. It’s good material. This year’s theme was LIGHT.
May God bless the Light that was received by each student, and may He shine in their lives!
