Our summer outreach this year will be July 22 to 31. For the first time we will be offering all five days of Community VBS to the children in the Fishing Village. We also will have many work projects planned for the school. Of course, there will be some down-time and a chance to have some fun.
This year we are taking the biggest team yet—20 people! From age 11 to almost 70, we have the teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s covered! We have educators, administrators, a full-time missionary, moms, dads, grandparents, recent high-school graduates—and an amazing blend of talents, spiritual giftings, and life experiences. Here's a brief overview of our schedule:
Sunday, July 23 – Bring a worship service to the Fishing Village in White House. Afterwards, have a “free sale” where donated clothes we’ll be taking down will be available for the families of the village.
Monday to Friday, July 24 to 28 – From 10 to noon we’ll start each day by bringing Community VBS to the children of the Fishing Village. We hope to bus in some of the children from the nearby community of Flanker as well. In the afternoons, some of our team will be working on projects at the school while others will be playing with and ministering to the children, some will be offering bible study and other activities for the moms, and all will be available for prayer and one-on-one face time with any who need it. We hope to end on Friday by giving out grocery bags to each family like we did last year.
Saturday, July 29 – In years past, it’s been work, work, work. This year, we’re taking a “fun day” and as a team going to Dunns River Falls!
Sunday, July 30 – Attending the worship service at the Uprising at Fairhaven, the guest house where we’re staying. We hope to meet up with the kids from Robins Nest Children’s Home at Doctors Cave Beach in the afternoon. We’ll also prepare to return to the US.
As you can see, our team for this year is set. But if you're interested in knowing more about joining us in future years, please use our contact form, and we will get back to you!
