Early reports indicate that once again this year, there will be good attendances at the Vacation Bible Schools which most of the churches of the Advent Christian Conference of India and the Fellowship of Blessed Hope Churches hold during their summer vacation month of May. In past years total attendances have been in the area of 13 to 14 thousand children and young people attending as each church holds its VBS each day for a week during the month – many of the children are from non-Christian and Hindu homes.
Please thank the Lord and pray for the leaders and teachers who give a week of their annual holidays to be involved – some in teaching, some in preparing food for the midday meal which is provided and some who lead various kinds of entertainment and handcraft activities throughout the days. Please also pray that by the power of God’s Holy Spirit the message of His love and of salvation in Jesus Christ will touch the hearts of many of the children and young people.
Reports from three of the churches which held their VBSs in the first week of May advised attendances as 168 at Teynampet FBHC church; 120 at Guindy ACCI church and 80 at Nandanam FBHC church – see pictures below
