Teacups in the Jungle

Life stories from a missionary mama

We had a wonderful time at our Daily Vacation Bible School (DVBS) this week. It was so good, that we are now all totally exhausted!  Mainly due to the heat and humidity, but a church packed with kids from ages 4 to 18 probably had something to do with it too. So, since I have few words to spill out tonight, I decided to post some photos instead, and let these precious faces tell their own stories.

It was so lovely to see families attending, learning and serving together – this is a photo of a group of cousins! (Below)

And this photo (below) is of another complete family who attended. The Dad, Romy, was the teacher on the first day. His wife was a leader of a small group, (20 something kids), and their four kids also attended daily. The gospel changes families. I get teary-eyed every time, looking at families such as these, and thinking of the grace of God. Families, just like mine, that have been changed by the grace of God; for the glory of God.

A new family picture. We praise God for these precious souls who came to know Christ as their personal Saviour. We pray that they will grow in their knowledge of God’s Word and that God would use their little lives for His great glory. I was 11 years old, at a church camp, when I got saved; it resonates deep with me, to know that God has a wonderful plan for each dear life. How exciting to see His church growing! 

It was a wonderful week working side by side with our co workers (Wrights and Diegos) and also with our brothers and sisters in Christ from right here in the village. I was so blessed and encouraged watching them working together, sacrificing their time, and offering their hands and hearts to play a part in sharing the wonderful message of the gospel with the next generation. Pure joy.

Heading home….

Thank you so much for your prayers during this past week. God is so good and so faithful.

Goodnight from the jungle,
Philippa.
