On April 6, 7, and 8, a lot of the IGSL playground team did a VBS for kids near the school. It was really fun. We put on a play, gave snacks, led worship with fun songs, and did crafts with the kids. In the plays, I played a blind man, a disciple, and a woman going to Jesus’ tomb. It was a little hard at points because most of the kids did not speak great English, but they were able to understand the plays anyway.
The crafts we made were really cool. We made crosses, stick people, and a two-faced blind man. It was really fun. The worship songs we sang were “My God is so big, so strong and so mighty,” “Jesus loves me,” and our friend Deborah Fellows sang a song in Tagalog. The kids got really excited when they got to go to the front and sing.
On the last day we had a graduation for the kids. It was a big deal as many girls came in dresses and looking nice. We put on the play about when Jesus was crucified. We played with the kids too. After the play, we gave them snacks. Some of them gave us homemade jewelry to thank us for doing the VBS. Then we gave the kids goodie bags which had markers and a little cross in it.
I had a lot of fun. I think it meant a lot to the kids that we did a VBS. My favorite parts were the worship and the plays. I had a lot of fun doing it with my friends. I hope you like the pictures from our VBS that we did.
