When Grown-Ups Go To VBS

Updated: Oct 27


On the most recent team trip to the Merci’ de Dieu (Thanks to God) Village, one of our main objectives was to register sponsored children for school. Once that task was complete, our team put on a Vacation Bible School for the children of the village.

The kids LOVED it, but I’m pretty sure the team had equally as much fun.


In addition to Scripture memory, songs, and games, we also taught lessons through skits. Every good VBS has to have skits, right? The first day we taught the power of obedience through the Stop-Watch skit. Kenlley was our brave runner, who delighted the kids as he ran through the “jungle” many times until he learned the value of obedience and was protected from being bitten by a jungle snake.

The following photos are from our second day’s lesson. Which clearly show you that we were talking about the story of Joseph. [Okay, maybe not-so-clearly . . . but we all had such a fun time using our imagination!] 🙂
