In the U.S. our VBS experiences are often very elaborate. U.S. VBS experiences dazzle kids with detailed sets, themed rooms, complex crafts and assure parents with careful check in and check out procedures. In Central America kids just show up. They often walk for an hour more often carrying a younger sibling with them. We welcome whoever shows up and send them on their way when the program is done for the day. Due to the very remote nature of this VBS, translation needs and the limited luggage capacity of small airplanes (most of the team only brought a carry-on bag) everything we did was simple. Our set-up was simple, our crafts were simple, outside play was simple but we brought with us the same thing that we experience in the U.S.A.: a deep love for Jesus and a desire to share that love with the children. This years’ theme verse was Philippians 4:13 “I can do all this through Christ who gives me strength” and our Bible time focused on some of the key events in the Book of Acts.
