Kids at VBS

This past week, our church had the Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the kids. There were an average of 50 kids who attended each day. The VBS started last Monday from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM and ended last Friday. Hubby and I were able to attend Wednesday night. The kids were all so enthusiastic to learn and participate in the activities. They had also some crafts like making beads bracelets. I had fun assisting them how to make their bracelets. While they were instructed to put the beads one by one, the teacher asked them what does each color reminds them of. Then she will tell the kids what the color of each beads stands for. The yellow or gold reminded her about heaven because the Bible says that we will walk in the streets of gold in heaven. The black stands for our sins. The red reminded her of the blood of Jesus that was shed for our sins and the white stands for purity. Each kid has made her/his own bracelet. Then they had snacks. How blessed the kids are in this country. In the Philippines, we also had VBS in our church but it's not as fabulous as the VBS here in the US. Some bigger churches here even have inflatable games, ventriloquist and other attractions. Our pastor announced this morning that there were 5 kids who got saved and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior during the VBS. That's the purpose of VBS, to broadcast the gospel so people get saved.

I took photos during the VBS and here are some of it.



There was this little girl who was so cute and she even wanted hubby to hold her. She was holding hubby's leg and wanted hubby to carry her. See was a cutie!
