Each day began with spirited worship sessions, where children and volunteers came together to praise and connect with God. The atmosphere was filled with joy and reverence.
Engaging Bible Lessons: Our dedicated teachers brought the Scriptures to life, encouraging our young participants to explore and deepen their faith. The children were captivated by the stories and lessons shared.
Creative Arts and Crafts: The children embraced their creativity through various arts and crafts projects, fostering a deeper understanding of the day’s lessons. Their artistic expressions were both meaningful and inspiring.
Community Building: Our program promoted a sense of community and belonging. Children and volunteers built lasting friendships and support networks, creating a warm and inclusive environment.
I attended AFF VBS for the first time. It was an opportunity for me to learn more about the bible. I had a lot of fun and many more things. I needed this kind of teaching that can help change my life as a youth. The teaching we received taught me that I am not alone, and I am loved. I look forward to next year’s VBS.

I am in high school. This year I attended 3 days VBS, and it was so wonderful. I truly appreciate our teachers and trainers. The lessons I got from these 3 days will help me improve my life. May God continues to bless our pastor Edah, and all people involved to make this VBS a reality.
Participant Testimonial 2
“As trainer, I am also thankful that I got the opportunity to experience VBS this year. By engaging with the youth, I ended up learning a lot myself. This was a learning experience for me. These 3 days spent with the youth helped me grow. During the first day, we had a handful of kids. The number kept growing the second and third day. These kids were shown love as God would.”

As you can notice, this year’s VBS in Attitogon ended up being a learning and a discovering opportunity for all parties involved: kids, youth, trainers, and volunteers. The community members created time to talk and interact with themselves. They shared their insights with one another about who God is and how He works in their lives.
