We praise the Lord for 12 children saved during this week of Vacation Bible School!!! All of our efforts were worth it! This last day we met for a short assembly to hand out prizes earned throughout the week and to invite everyone to church the next day. Then, all of us workers headed to the Hess's home for an afternoon of food, fellowship, and much-needed rest!
(We did receive one complaint about our open-air meeting, so the orphanage director offered to let us move into the orphanage's property, which we gladly did. Behind the gate where David is speaking in this picture, you can see where we originally met all week.)
