This year we organised our second children’s summer camp. Once again God provided the resources and we were able to spend 7 days in the countryside, enjoying friendship, having fun and learning from the bible.
There were 25 children, of whom 10 were from families who don’t come to church. For some it was their first experience of this kind. The theme of the camp was courage and it was based on the story of Gideon. Each day, the children learned about God having a plan for each of our lives and that He is also able to help us fulfil it. We also sang and discussed different themes, with the children divided into their age groups for discussion.
As well as the teaching, we also had sport, free-time, games and English classes in two age groups.
Since the majority of the children are from Niš, we have remained in contact with them and regularly invite them to our youth and children’s activities. We’ve also transformed our Sunday school into a children’s club, where the learning activities are a similar style to those from the camp. Some of the children from the camp whose parents do not attend church have also shown interest in the club – and these parents are supportive of their children’s involvement with us. It’s so exciting to be able to share His word with children.
We were very blessed on the camp. As always, prior to the camp, we prayed for the team, for the children and for protection for everyone. And we really felt God’s protection.
