“Let’s Go Change The World”
VBS Mission Project 2017
Ananias House
“But the Lord said to Ananias, ‘Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.’” Acts 9:15-16 

Indeed, we, in America are FREE to worship and own and study a Bible without fear of suffering, however, that is not true in Syria. Syria is far away in Western Asia, near Iraq, and it is a country where they can’t go to church or learn about Jesus without fear of losing their life. There is significant conflict and a civil war going on in Syria which has claimed an estimated 250,000 lives and driven over 4.8 million Syrians to seek refuge in other countries. Through our project this year, we will be collecting CHANGE each night with the goal of helping provide love and support for children and families in Syria. We will collect offering during our Assembly at 6pm each evening.
We can worship anytime we want and study God’s word anytime in America, but in Syria, they have to do it in secret. So you can imagine how very few people, especially children, know about Jesus. Our mission project will help more and more Syrian children and families receive Bibles in their own language so they can know Jesus. This project is so incredible, you cannot even know the impact it will make.

Sunday School Children Sponsor Jean Yawo Atama from Togo, Africa!

On Compassion Sunday, April 22, 2012, DCE Kristy Witek shared her experience with sponsoring two girls through an organization called Compassion. The children in Sunday School also learned about this amazing organization and how they bring the Great News of Jesus to children all over the world! After talking to our children about these children, particularly a three year old little boy, we decided that our Sunday School could sponsor him! Part of our Sunday School Offering each month will go toward this little boy. We will be able to correspond with him, learn about him, his family and his life in Africa.

The little boy that we have decided to sponsor is Jean Yawo Atama. His birthday is December 31, 2008.  He lives in Africa in a country called Togo. Togo is a country in Africa between Ghana and Nigeria. In his home, Jean helps by helping in the kitchen and running errands. He lives with his father and mother. They are both sometimes employed as farmers. Jean is not presently attending school. He loves soccer, singing and playing games. He attends church and Bible class regularly. Because of our sponsorship, Jean will have new opportunities to learn and grow physically, mentally and spiritually. 

Please continue to pray for Jean as we sponsor him!
