PROVIDING A VBS AND SPORT OUTREACH WHILE DELIVERING FILTERS, LOVE, AND HOPE

Centered around the Church of Berea in the village of Violetta Correra, this ten day trip saw God work in many wonderful ways. We had a team of six delivering clean water while conducting both a vacation bible school and sport outreach.

SPORT OUTREACH

It was obvious from arrival that God had hand chosen each member of this team specifically for this trip. God brought into the church nearly 100 teenagers for our sport outreach on Monday! Ehren, along with our local church support team, did an incredible job of organizing this event which included soccer and volleyball for the entire community. Wrapping up the event, Ehren presented the salvation plan to all teams involved! Many seeds were planted for His kingdom!

Sport Outreach

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. – Ephesians 5:1-2

Vacation Bible School

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons were reserved for working with the local children in the community. The church saw more than 130 kids between the ages of 3-14 attend to hear bible stories about our Savior and how they too can have a relationship with Him! Several children came to a new faith in Christ because of this!

HYGIENE AND SANITATION TRAINING

During the course of our week, we saw 66 families receive the gifts of clean water and proper training on good hygiene and sanitation to help keep their families healthy! Each of the team members had an opportunity to personally teach a course on Monday and Tuesday morning. Families were taught how diseases are transmitted and how to protect themselves and their families from these diseases by erecting barriers between themselves and the germs. Each family was trained on proper hand washing (how, why, where, and when), the contamination cycle, and other topics such as how to build a hand washing station. Feedback from the families was fantastic! Video testimonies can be found on our website. Pastor Canayo was trained on all topics and is the community point of contact for all families.

WATER FILTER DELIVERY

Wednesday was the day we delivered the water filters to the families and trained each family member, hands on, with how to operate and maintain the filters. Each team member had a group of families to train. What an incredible blessing it was to bring these simple devices to God’s children!
