Tomorrow we have a group of teenagers coming for our Rumble in the Jungle project. We are looking forward to a great week of events and to getting to know these young people. Please join us in praying for the impact in the communities, safety for all, that the lives of those coming would be touched and changed and that the Lord´s presence would be felt by all throughout the week! God Bless!
The last couple weeks in February our team was busier than usual putting on Vacation Bible Schools in their different communities. Over the course of two weeks our team put on VBS in 7 different communities around the city of Puerto Maldonado. Each VBS was two days long and the kids learned the love of Jesus through different Bible stories and crafts. Some learned about obedience through the story of Abraham, others about the story of Jonah, and others were reminded that God is always near them as they learned about Joseph. They did wonderful crafts, learned memory verses and new songs, played games and finished up the two days with a little party at the end. A cool part of this for me was that my sister´s 3rd grade class at Chico Christian helped make this possible by raising money selling hot chocolate. I know, so sweet! It was so touching for me to know that the Lord used those kids to make a difference in the lives of kids here in our city of Puerto! Thanks Mrs. Zancanella´s Class! It was an awesome couple weeks as so many kids were able to hear about the Love of Christ Jesus!
