The final day of VBS at 8 Mile was a fun-packed time for all. The team even got to play a freindly match of soccer with some of the kids after the programe. On Thursday we were able to pick up another six children from the little community across the highway. The crafts that the team shared with the kids were a huge hit. The leaders put on another great skit and each boy and girl recieved prizes for all their hard work. Tomorrow there will be a special meeting for thier parents to come and see what their children did and to meat the team.
Today the team went to a little island called Cay Caulker. Many of the team shorkled for the first time ever right beside the largest living coral reef in the world. The outing included swimming with sharks and rays at "Shark-Ray Alley". After a good rest we all went to the youth group in Belize City. Team Canada provided the singing, skits and a craft and two of the team shared their testimonies. It was really special to see the youth listeing with interest as Thalia and Joanne shared how they got saved and how God is working in their lives to overcome challenges and give victory in situations which are common to youth in any country. Tomorrow we have a full schedule of meetings so we will sign off. Praise the Lord for His love and care over the team (1 Peter 5:7). We hope you enjoy a few shots of the team in action...
