With a team of 12 from Canada and an additional team of 6 for a soccer camp at the beginning of the week, many activities were held for the children this year. 109 children participated in the soccer camp and 140 at the VBS. An extra activity was Tie-Dye T-Shirts for all the children. Several members of the team also tried the children's favourite snack, termites.
Pastor Ed, Cheryl and Brianna Hickey visited MCCH in April. Cheryl and Brianna ran a week long VBS for the children. We invited the community to VBS and it was so much fun for the 100+ children. The older children served as Crew Leaders and the centre manager's 4 oldest daughters helped by leading stations with us.
In the afternoon, Brianna played games in the field with the children. Duck, Duck, Goose and Simon Says were their favourites.
Pastor Ed taught a 4 day Discipleship Training Seminar (DTS) for the pastors and leaders in the area. The attendees were very grateful for the training they received, For most of these leaders formal Bible School training is not possible due to lack of finances. Pastor Ed's missions program called The Paul Initiative provided all the materials and supplies for both the VBS and the DTS.
We can't wait for our next visit.
