Newsito: Mountaineers for Jesus Part 4

At the heart of Rancho Oasis is the Youth and the week of VBS with the Western Virginian volunteers was great.

During the afternoons of VBS, the students were divided into teams with different stations:

 The game table was a great way to interact with the kids (and get their brains thinking). Activities as simple and common in the US, such as puzzles, are extremely challenging and fun for these kids.

Circling up to color & memorize

The art / craft table was a fun way to retell the bible lesson and work on the memory verse for the day.

Working together on activity pages.

The activity page table reinforced the Bible lesson and most importantly its application.

Stuck in Sin - No help from alcohol

One of the greatest challenges facing the team was the language barrier. However, this was easily overcome via skits / mimes to communicate the Good News of Jesus! The kids loved the VBS crew and all eyes were glued on the messages. Great job team!

Our strength can't get us out of sin!
We can't buy our way out of sin!

Pointing to Jesus - only He can free us from sin!

Another blessing for the children who attended the VBS were the daily prizes. We're not talking Chinese handcuffs and glow sticks, but new shoes, backpacks, pants, shirts and school supplies.

Blessed by the new stage and new faces - VBS worship!

Thanks again to the VBS crew!!!
