Here are some pics to help you to visualize what we did:
We used the Kids of Courage curriculum from Voice of the Martyrs. Each day we studied a different country where Christians are trying to proclaim the Good News in dangerous settings where the Gospel is not aloud to be shared. Our group of 11 people was ages 11 - 55. The difficult topic of being courageous in sharing our faith was paired with a Bible story in which people of God had acted courageously. The countries studied were: North Korea, India, Nigeria, China, and Egypt.
We started everyday with worship.
Nancy Taught the Bible stories...
And the children acted them out.
We made crafts.
Carol and Lois brought T-shirts that we decorated with signatures and words of encouragement.
We played games.
And we went swimming.
We owe a BIG thank you to Lois Rhodes and Carol Rhodes who came down to Belize for 10 days to help with VBS. Your support and ideas and presence were a blessing to us. I also want to thank Water of Life Lutheran Church for your donation that made this VBS possible. Thanks!
