The Day of Countries of the World!

Dear Friends, Supporters and Visitors of our website,

It is a great pleasure for us to let you know about more activities of the running summer camp. A new day started for the camp attendees. There had been planned interesting and attractive activities for children during this long summer camp day. The bright sun in the morning announced everybody about a wonderful day ahead. So, it is ‘Wake up!’ time and the sleepy children slowly moved to the play ground where they participated in morning gym. This activity refreshed the children who enjoyed the gym excercises!!

The Bible lesson was about David and Goliath. The Bible verse for today was ‘I can do all this through him who gives me strength.’ Philippians 4:13(NIV) The Bible lesson was presented using puppets which caught children’s attention for the message they conveyed. ‘The children liked the Bible lesson of today. They were so attentive and listen to each word uttered during the lesson. They learned that God is on the side of those who love and obey Him. Indeed, Lord gives us the strength we need to cope with all life trials and problems. It is a great encouragement for everybody to know that God is close to us every moment of our lives! Also the children actively participated in group discussions after the Bible lesson. There they studied the Bible truth in depth. The children learned how to apply this in their lives. We pray God bless the children and stay close them forever even after they leave the summer camp site.’ – shared Elena, one of Christian Input coordinators in the summer camp.

Sport contest and outdoor activities brought the children enormous joy and they had lots of fun. Some of them participated with great pleasure in sport contest while their friends and educators encouraged them shouting their names when their turn came around. The sport tasks were various and the children involved themselves physically and emotionally. In the afternoon there was organized an interesting game for all the children in the summer camp called ‘The Apostolic Church’. There were given to children small pieces of paper with various Bible verses from the Epistles of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Thessaloninans, etc. The children should deliver these small pieces of paper with Bible verses to the respective Churches but there were set up various trials they should overcome while delivering the ‘letters’. The goal of this game was to spread the Word of God to children and introduce more the children into Bible knowledge. The children enjoyed the game very much and participated with great pleasure and joy.

There was announced the name of the day in the morning. It was special and required children’s creativiy and ingeniosity. So, the day was called The Day of the Nations of the World. The children should choose one country, prepare its national costume and some information about its culture. It was amazing! The children were busy with preparing the best and beautiful national costume. They did a great job again! So, the summer camp was visited by lots of visitors who wore colorful costumes depicting various countries of the world like United States of America, India, Italy, Spain, South Korea, Africa and others. It was a special evening where the children spent wonderful time singing, laughing, performing and sharing their knowledge about the various countries of the world. They had fun and were delighted with all the events of the day. The children went to bed very impressed of all activities over the day!!!

We continue to pray for all the children in the summer camp and the rest of the summer camp days!!

Thank you for your attention!
