Smiles and Slippers

Your mission offerings accomplish some pretty exciting things around the world! Recently they helped support a Vacation Bible School (VBS) in the Philippines to reach out to the children of the Katutubo tribe. Katutubo are the indigenous people of Mindoro, the seventh largest island of the Philippines.

After listening to a Bible story, the children color a picture.   Marlo recites a memory verse. On the last day of VBS, each child receives a pair of slippers.  
 Every day the children enjoy listening to Bible stories and participating in crafts. They also learn about how to care for their bodies through proper eating and hygiene.  Coloring and cutting out a crown is fun!  Children learn how to properly wash their hands, bathe, and brush their teeth with guidance from Keirn Karen Pajarito, a nursing instructor at the Adventist University of the Philippines.
 The children enjoy a healthful, delicious meal after the activities. The children learn songs and how to pray. 
Jane’s son, N. J., models a crown.  
Each child is given a towel, nail clippers, cotton swabs, soap, shampoo, and toothpaste. The children’s families are invited to attend their VBS graduation. Many parents want another VBS program as they have seen positive changes in their children’s characters.  
Story provided by Jane Fajut, Adventist Mission office, Southern Asia-Pacific Division. Jane directed the VBS program, assisted by members of the Macatoc and Bagong Buhay Seventh-day Adventist churches.
