REACHING OUT 7
So What's Next?
Cristo Pan De Vida (Christ Bread Of Life) meets in a shed with an improvised roof. And that’s where we held our first Vacation Bible School in the neighbourhood, 2nd of April. In terms of attendance, families reached the programme, the VBS was a success. Close to a 130 children filled the shed; we just could not take any more.
We struggled with the lack of adequate facilities and were grateful that our neighbour allowed us to use her large patio for some of the games. The piping in the kitchen is worn out; roof leaks when it rains; the electricity at times cuts off during Sunday service.
This boy behind the locked gate was probably one of the many children who did not take part in the VBS. He seems interested but can’t get in. Many families and children are bound by the enemy and there are still locked out of the kingdom. Next year, God willing, we hope to do another VBS at 2nd Of April. This will require finances, planning, training and scheduling – its a lot of work; it will be worth it however if children like this boy can get in and hear the gospel!!
Jesus said, "let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these". When he placed his hands on them, he went on from there. Matthew 19:14-15
