Change and Some Duct Tape….
This past summer, Higher Vision Church located in Santa Clarita, CA decided to adopt ZOE International for their 2017 Vacation Bible School missions focus. ZOE International is a nonprofit organization that cares for orphans and rescues children from human trafficking.
Each child was given a plastic tube to collect change through our Kids Helping Kids program. The VBS was over the course of five days and the theme this year was Maker Fun Factory. Higher Vision Church prayed for and had over 600 children in attendance and at the end of the week, more than half of the children raised their hands to accept Jesus Christ into their lives. As if that wasn’t amazing already, in just five days, the children collected over $5,000 to be donated to the children at ZOE! I was completely blown away that in just five days…children under the age of 12…collected change equaling over $5,000! Wow! How cool is that?
Along with learning about ZOE and what ZOE does with their donations, the children learned various bible points throughout the week such as, God Made You! – Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex (Psalm 13:14) and God is Always with You! – The Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9).
One of the highlights of the week was that on the last day, one leader would be duct taped to the wall. For organization purposes, the children at the beginning of VBS are separated into 4 color groups. With the creativity of the VBS planners and because who doesn’t enjoy some friendly competition, they decided that the color group that brought in the most change for ZOE would get to see their team leader get duct taped to the wall! The competition was intense and the kids had a blast!
Thank you to everyone at Higher Vision for such a memorable summer! If you’re interested in bringing Kids Helping Kids to your church, school or club this holiday season, contact email@example.com today!
