The kids had a blast. The parents swapped stories and encouragement with each other. Our Haitian staff pulled off an amazing week at our 9th annual VBS!
Here are a few highlights of this much-anticipated week!
A DREAM FOR HAITI
The Torbeck Home of Hope performed a skit one night called, “A Dream for Haiti.” They dream that someday, all people will meet – nurses, lawyers, agronomists – with one goal to save Haiti. People won’t need to go to Chile, Brazil or Argentina, but will join hands as one, serving together. They gave thanks to God, LSM and the staff in the US and all those who support the work to make their families possible.
What a beautiful vision! We pray this dream becomes a reality through these amazing kids!
These soccer games are intense and so fun for everyone to watch! This year, it included some of the younger staff willing to take on the older boys at a couple of homes. It’s so good to see the parents and staff having fun with the kids, and deepening their relationships.
MENTORS & TALKING ABOUT THE FUTURE
Erve and Jean Wesly, two of our Haitian staff who attended college in the States, shared a talk with the older kids on “How to Choose your Career.” They were well received. The kids really appreciated the insights of successful men who are working hard to improve their country. We are so blessed with countless great examples in our staff that are mentoring our kids as they grow up.
GAMES, BIBLE QUIZZES, WORSHIP, GOSPEL STORIES AND SHARED MEALS
VBS is not only their highlight of summer, but also a beautiful reminder of the transformation these children have experienced in their short lives. We hope you enjoy seeing them grow up in these photos too!
