It is school break and we have been encouraging the kids to serve others with their time off from school.  Yes, relax, enjoy their equivalent of 'summer break' but also, instead of sitting around, find a way to be of help to others.

They chose to get involved with our version of 'Vacation Bible School'  which takes place in 'tok pisin' and while modeled after what we know as VBS in the U.S. has been customized for this country's culture. 

from my wife:
Here's a glimpse of day 1 of VBS. As you can see it was a full house. Please keep praying for health and stamina for all of the leaders and that God's word would touch the hearts of all of these kids. Here's an interesting fact: typically our largest groups of kids fall in the preschool to grade 1 age group, followed by kids in grades 2-4. We usually get a smaller amount of kids in grades 5 and up. However, on day 1 it seems we had almost 100 girls in grades 5 and up. This is NOT typical. I wonder what God's got planned?
