This year, in a South Asian country, ServeNow has initiated a new project that has already yielded some beautiful results. We decided that in keeping with our mission to “assist the Church for greater fulfillment of it’s ministry” that we would come alongside some local churches that wanted to host a Vacation Bible School program for kids in their area. These are poor churches (slum area’s) that do not have the resources to be able to do something like this but want to reach out with the love of God. For many of the children coming it is the first time they are hearing about Jesus and God’s love for them!
Here is a little video followed by several testimonies from the first two VBS programs! (VBS Video)
Pawan: “I came for the first time to this camp with one of my friends. I do not know who Jesus is but after attending the VBS classes I came to know that Jesus is God and He forgives every small and big mistakes. I am very happy to learn about Jesus and I learned many action songs. Thank you for allowing me to attend the camp.”
“My name is Aaron. It’s a joy to be able to attend this camp. I loved the book God’s Love for You which has interesting activities and lessons.”
My name is Sowmya, am studying in second class. I love to come to church because I like Jesus’ stories. I came to know that Jesus answers our prayers. I am also learning many action songs and stories.
Vimala, is 15 years old. She lost her parents at the age of 3 and has lived with her grandparents ever since. Vimala is disabled and has difficulty speaking and walking. She has never attended school and has been confined to her home her entire childhood. Vimala was very excited to be a part of ServeNow’s summer camp and tried her best to be involved in the activities and songs during the camp. On the last day, Vimala amazed everyone by reciting John 3:16 during the memory verse competition after which she received a special certificate and a gift!
I am really enjoying this summer camp. I learned many memory verses and came to know stories about Jesus and his disciples. Especially I learned that Jesus forgives our mistakes. Thank you.
My name is Munni, am studying in 9th class. Jesus helped me a lot. I want to give thanks to Jesus. I was very happy and I learned many new songs, memory verses and Jesus stories. I am very happy to be able to attend ServeNow’s summer camp. Thank you.
