Summer Camp 2019 - Day 3

Camper’s Choice

At camp, there are times when campers get to choose a project to work on during the week. These times are known as “Camper’s Choice.” Some of the choices include ministry projects they can do to help others.

 

Pursuing God through Prayer

The baby was born in late spring. Every day when his mother came home from work, she would put him in his stroller and take him for a walk. They loved to walk around the pond and look for ducks. She would say, “God made the ducks. Thank You, God, for ducks.”

Make Jesus the Focus in Teaching Preschoolers

During VBS one year, one of the teachers taught in our church’s VBS in the morning and then taught children in VBS at a Spanish church in the evenings. She took her 10-year-old son to VBS at both churches. The evenings were a repeat of the activities he had done in the mornings.

The year was 1927. Home on her first furlough, Elizabeth Ellyson Wiley spoke at First Baptist Church of Charlottesville, Virginia.  She and her husband, J. Hundley Wiley, served at the University of Shanghai in China.

Moving Up to Children’s Missions

You can probably tell that they aren’t kindergartners any more. Now these Mission Friends seem a little bit taller and wiser, and they are looking forward to becoming first-graders with the upcoming school year.

Teaching the Talkative, Praying for Patience

In my Mission Friends, we have a 4-year-old little boy who never stops talking. I mean nev-er. He bursts in the room telling us excitedly about the airplane he’s made with his paper from preschool choir. Even while he’s doing everyday things like washing his hands, his head is turned to tell you something. I’m telling the mission story, and he’s talking away.

Others in My Community

Birmingham Alabama

Last week I looked out across the city of Birmingham from the tower that is the base of the Vulcan statue, which is the symbol for the city and reflects Birmingham’s background in the iron and steel industry. The statue is at the top of Red Mountain. From the tower you can look out over the city in the valley below to see the hospitals, churches, synagogue, university buildings, airport, homes, roads, schools, and the tall buildings of downtown. You also see the trees and rolling mountains on all sides. It is a wonderful view of this community at the southern end of the Appalachians.

During July we focus on the Christian concept area of community in Mission Friends. In talking with preschoolers about community, this relates to the people who live near me in my town or neighborhood. As we talk about the Hmong people in Southeast Asia, we will focus on the strong communities they develop.

Project HELP: Refugees

Refugees

Vivian’s Mission Friends made a giant card and filled snack bags to give the teachers and aids who teach in the English as a Learned Language department at the high school across the street from their church. Vivian wrote Thank you on the front of the card. Beforehand, she printed from her computer the words Thank you in different languages in large font size, and the preschoolers glued these collage style inside the card. They decorated the card with stickers and drawings. Vivian delivered the card and snack bags to the teachers the next day. What a treat and encouragement this must have been to these teachers!
