We thoroughly enjoyed the H.S.W. and appreciated the participation of all the children; their willingness to join in and take part in all the activities. We had no children saying they were bored or having a sulk or 'doing their own thing'. It was a pleasure to be with them all.
We took age appropriate topics-light/stars/electricity with the older ones and animals with the younger ones. We all did a lot of craft, music and drama and the younger ones went to the zoo one day. The parents were most appreciative.
We were blessed by the children's faith, their knowledge of the Bible, their willingness to pray with us and share their experiences. Gordon is a trained presenter for “Walk through the bible” and in the five days we covered the entire Old Testament in drama, storytelling and hand actions.
The time we spent with some of the parents was an inspiration to us and we have been praying for them since hearing some of their stories. We were told early on never to mention the word ‘missionary’ to the children due to the security implications in their field of work and for the same reason sadly had to promise not to put any photos online either on SVN website or Facebook.
