Today we began day two of Kids Bible Camp! Yesterday’s theme was “He loves” while the theme today was “He gives!” To help the kids understand that salvation in Christ is free, we sent them into the compound and gave away free gifts (lollies). As the kids returned there were mixed reactions. Some kids enjoyed giving away a free gift while others wanted to keep the gifts for themselves. All of the Americans enjoyed getting to go out into the community to see where their kids live.
The Arise staff put on an amazing skit to help the kids better grasp the concept of a free gift. We could tell that the kids were really starting to understand!
After camp we went to visit Destiny School where Arise has a sponsorship program. Two of the Arise staff walked us through the local market, Buseco, and we got to see where people in the community live and work. It made a huge impact on all of us.
We are so excited for day three of camp tomorrow! The Lord is working in these kid’s hearts and we can’t wait to see what else He has in store!
