Martinique VBS teaches God is Creator

Martinique VBS teaches God is Creator

by | 23 Aug, 2019

Nearly 80 children gathered for Morne Venté Church of the Nazarene's Vacation Bible School, “The Mystery of the Universe.” The weeklong event included biblical and missionary stories, a service project, songs, and challenges.

The children learned about God as the Creator, the need to know Him and belong to Him, and how to be good protectors of the environment. Many activities were scheduled, including an outing for Operation Beach Cleanup, a visit to an organic farm, the screening of an animated film, and a presentation by a local organization.

The VBS was greatly appreciated by both the children and their parents.

“My great-grandson from the city visited for a vacation and we asked him if he would like to meet other children at VBS," one woman shared. "Happy with the invitation, he woke up very early to get ready.

"In the afternoon, all excited he told me, ‘Grandma I am happy. I have Jesus in my heart. I accepted him into my heart.’ At the table he prayed for the food and thanked Jesus for being in his heart because he would never be the same. He was disappointed the following Monday to learn that VBS was over.”

Since its creation in the 1980s, this was the first year VBS was held during the day. This year's event nearly doubled in attendance compared to previous years.

“VBS this year has been special, rich in experiences with regards to the scheduled program," said Suzanne Kimboo, Sunday School and Discipleship Ministries superintendent. "We have seen the glory of God manifested throughout the organization. Congratulations to all those who have contributed in one way or another. I want to thank the entire team, an extraordinary team for their enthusiasm, courage, perseverance, and desire to work with these young people. May all of you be blessed!"
