In Colombia, the tradition for the Lutheran Church is to have the annual Vacation Bible School during the children's Christmas break. During the week of 14 of December I helped lead the VBS for one of the mission congregations in the south of Bogota, Caracoli, at Luz y Vida (Light and Life).
|Here are a few of our craft projects throughout the week. I really worked with a great group of kids.|
I was in charge of teaching the 'little ones' ages 3-6. Zulma taught the children age 7-10, and Hebert the oldest kids ages 11 and up. We used the material that I blogged about here (Walking in the Grace), created specially for the Lutheran Church of Colombia, by the Lutheran Church of Colombia. The week was, like most VBS's, filled with songs, crafts, games and of course Bible Study.
The VBS week ends with a Christmas program. One of the parts of the week is to learn the songs for the program as well assign speaking parts. The children spent a long time practicing, but in the end it all came together and was amazing!
