CLCI INDIA ANNUAL VBS REPORT
A report on CLCI annual VBS, presented to the JOINT ASIA ENGLISH PASTORAL CONFERENCE-2010, HELD AT NELLORE, DATED 6TH TO 7TH OCTOBER – 2010
Proverbs 14:26-27 In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence, And His children will have a place of refuge. The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, To turn one away from the snares of death.
Dearly beloved brothers, Greetings to all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The CLCI VBS celebrated another successful year. Here is the summary of the Vacation Bible School 2010. Our annual VBS was held from July 12th-15th, 2010. At every point we reinforced the Gospel with songs, crafts, scripture memory and stories from the Bible. The children presented various programs and participated in all the major events of the VBS. Our efforts have been well received by 1460 children who participated.
This VBS was just another example of how so many Sunday school teachers, youth seminary students and women fellowship members volunteered their time and talents wholeheartedly as planners, coordinators, cooks, teachers, helpers, etc. to ensure its success. Many young people volunteered their time and talents to make VBS at the CLCI campus successful. And your prayers to God are being answered in ways we will never fully know.
This year also Seminary students did a very good job in educating the VBS volunteers to encourage, to guide, to create and to prepare them in free gospel service with great enthusiasm. They have continued to explore creative approaches to growing our VBS programs for Children. Also our CLCI orphan boys and girls took very active parts by singing songs, enacting skits, encouraging and entertaining everyone. We are also very much thankful to our CLCI Women fellowship members for their valuable help.
The children enjoyed snacks through the kind help of the CLCI women fellowship members, Also the help from the CLCI youth and seminary students making arrangements for the children and in looking after their needs, arrangements of tables, supply of VBS materials like Bibles, VBS books, etc. was amazing. Everyday the children started with a Sunday School Order of service which includes singing songs and choruses, Bible reading and following a short worship service.
We have activities like Bible education program, Bible quiz, Bible written tests, Bible story telling competitions, Coloring of pictures, coloring of plaques made of plaster of paris, Songs competitions, Sports and games. The youth choir continued to play an active role in providing inspiring songs and music for the children. This service provided an excellent environment for the children to provide music and singing. The music is one of everyone’s favorite parts and the elders love to listen and watch the kids sing praises to our Lord.
The kids also had a chance to win certificates, prizes and New Testaments for participating in various activities. Children learned many other lessons, enjoyed being together and finished up with a big cookout meal. Everyone received a book of John’s Gospel with colored pictures.
The children enjoyed all of these activities. The Seminary students created games.
God’s grace has been sufficient. We thank Him for enabling me all this while. Glory be to God! We pray that His blessings may rest upon all the children through the humble and earnest endeavor. Please pray for the coming VBS, pray for many children to attend in 2011.
Through these children, many new members were influenced and inspired to rest on the One Who is “Mighty to save.” The Lord’s Name was glorified. All glory, laud and honor to Him alone. We pray that His blessings may rest upon all the children. Thank you for your sincere prayers and faithful support to the CLCI VBS ministry. Please pray that the Lord will use this ministry to bring many into His kingdom and to call some into full-time Christian service.
Your prayer support will build the CLCI children as they will be prepared as God’s witnesses to influence their families and communities. May the Lord bless you all. Thank you.
