In the past two years, Living Waters Asia has included a vacation Bible school (VBS) for kids to its summer evangelism outreaches. This summer is no different. But instead of doing the VBS again where we did the last two in the town of Bustos, Bulacan, we decided to hold this year's kids outreach in a community in Baliuag, Bulacan, and we are happy to have made that move.
A section in the barangay of Pagala, right beside a big shopping mall, is a community with families that have none of the privileges that most people around it enjoy. We chose this area beside a dried-up rice field as the venue for our 5-day VBS from May 7 to 11. Kids learned about the 7 C's of history as Answers In Genesis presents it. In the days of this outreach that LWA partnered with Banner of Truth Independent Baptist Church, volunteers explained the Gospel and its scope from the very first pages of the Bible to what is presented in the Book of Revelation.
The kids that attended the VBS were not the only ones that heard the Gospel. Their parents and other adults in the area often listened during the classes and they all joined in during the graduation ceremony on the 5th day. We also gave Gospel tracts to people roaming around the area whenever that opportunity was available. Several local politicians were recipients of tracts on the first day of the VBS as they did their campaign for the election that was to happen the week after. And the day before the start of the outreach, the team also were able to share the Gospel to the Badjao tribal people who camped just a few hundred meters from the venue.
This outreach was really a big success. God allowed so many people to hear the Gospel in the five days we were in this community. After the graduation program, several of the kids voiced their desire to attend Sunday school at Banner of Truth Independent Baptist Church. And true enough, there were those that were present the following Sunday at the church. Please continue to pray for these kids and the adults who got to hear/read about the Gospel during this yearly summer outreach.
