Kids Learn & Do at VBS
Because today is Photo Day on Outreach Island, we won’t have a formal lesson. Instead, we’ll be creating wall art to send to our friends in Haiti and watching the school video below.
We may not be able to all visit our friends in Haiti, but we can send them something to remind them that we’re thinking of and praying for them.
Today, each grade created a piece of wall art that will ultimately hang in the kids’ dorms at the Glory Glory Center. Each student at VBS left his/her own mark on the art in the form of a thumbprint.
Parents Learn & Do Too
Your child can continue his/her relationship with Haiti after VBS! As a family, adopt a house full of Sam’s kids. Support them in the short-term while we work to build the school.
Questions to Ask Your Kids
1. What did you help create for the kids in Haiti today?
2. How can we pray for the kids in Haiti?
1. What did you learn about Pastor Samuel’s neighbors?
2. How did the children at the Glory Glory Center help their neighbors after the hurricane?
VBS Fundraising Goal
Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 to help build Sam’s school. We’ll be putting this money directly toward the construction of three (3) kindergarten classrooms and one (1) playground.
On our School page, you can read a summary of the project, as well as download a copy of the comprehensive Haiti School Strategic Plan and Haiti School Budget, which details exactly how much it will cost to build the school and operate it for one (1) year.
Cell Phone & Toiletries Collection
At Pastor Samuel’s request, we’re collecting gently used cell phones and toiletries this year to take to our friends in Haiti in August.
Cell Phones: Must be sim-card compatible. These phones will be distributed to people who lost their phones to the rain or tidal surge during Hurricane Matthew.
Toiletries: We’re requesting different toiletries from each of the grades at VBS so that we get an even mix of items. Please send only personal-sized items. We cannot transport family-sized or bulk items.
Kindergarten & Preschool – hair accessories (barrettes, headbands, ponytail holders, etc.)
1st Grade – bar soap & lotion
2nd Grade – toothbrush & toothpaste
3rd Grade – fine-toothed combs & picks (for african hair)
4th Grade – compact mirror (e.g. “clamshell” that folds and goes in your purse)
5th Grade – antiperspirant / deodorant (men & women)
