VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
The Guatemalan school year runs from January to October. Children have two months of vacation from school starting in November. Children look forward to vacation with great expectation. But often, children living in poverty do not have the chance to be children. Many have to stay home and take care of their younger siblings, while others have to work, or those that wander the streets are at risk of being recruited by drug dealers or gang members.
The exciting news is that Potter’s House has been preparing a Vacation Bible School (VBS) for our Treasures in November to ensure children have a vacation with purpose. The goal is to reach 1,750 Treasures from the Guatemala City garbage dump community and 250 Treasures from the countryside of Guatemala. Using the theme “How can I follow God?” from biblical principles, the Treasures will learn that God’s followers read the bible, obey His voice, share with others about Jesus, worship and pray, and serve others.
PROVIDE A VACATION WITH PURPOSE FOR 2,000 TREASURES!
We need $25 for each child. They will be receiving nutritious snacks and materials for their bible lessons for a week.
* Please choose gift number 4 in our gift catalog to donate.
We’ve prepared all year long to serve the Treasures through VBS. We invite you to lift up the Treasures in prayer so they can grow to become God’s followers while learning the truths of the Bible.
