VBS Brings Gospel to Thousands
Children are looking for anyone to show them love! This is evident as the VBS program has had large numbers annually in Northern Haiti. Starting with 100 in 2001, through the joint efforts of the 32 Grace Mission churches we have seen as many as 4,500 children attend.
What drew them first was the love shown by the workers and the churches in providing them an opportunity for an event completely their own. There were games, stories, songs and 1 meal per day of rice and beans. This love opened their hearts to hear about the love of Jesus who came to be their savior. Each summer many children believe in Christ! One year 700 plus, children responded to the invitation to receive the Lord Jesus.
The project requires 80 young people trained by CEF. Following that they will spread out to the villages and cities to have a week of VBS. The cost for this venture is $1.25 per child. 5,000 children can hear the gospel with a cost of $6,250. What an amazing investment. Thank you to those who gave. Results will soon be available.
A report is forthcoming during September of each year.
