Summer Camps in Bethlehem

editor - 20 August 2017

Dear brothers and sisters, Greetings to you from Bethlehem! We hope and pray this finds you well, as you seek diligently to do the Lord’s will for your life and His Kingdom of Heaven! We want to tell you about our different ‘summer programmes’ and what we have been working on. Let us keep His light shining!

Vacation Bible School for Children

We’re expecting about 200 children this summer, with activities such as learning Bible stories, singing and praying, reciting Bible verses and crafts. We rent vans so we can pick-up and drop-off the children and take them swimming. We also invite their parents to join us so we can talk to them too. Each child is provided with refreshments and snacks.

Family Camps

During the summer months, we take families from our church on a two-day refreshing trip with their children. As you can imagine a lot has to be arranged; we hire buses to take the families to the northern part of the country, arrange for their accommodation and also their meals.

For the parents, we provide a special programme, and for the children there are lots of activities and games. The majority of the time is devoted to preaching, choir singing and prayer time, followed by time for discussion and fellowship. A special youth programme is arranged too.

We pray that our funds will be sufficient to enable us to continue organising these summer activities. These programmes are for people who live under a lot of stress and pressure due to the unrest in the area. Many of them face financial difficulties, and anxiously look forward to having a break. A few days away for these families helps to release the tension, refreshes and reenergises them, enabling them to face new challenges as we as we head into the new season after summer.

Please pray that our needs will be met. We appreciate your kindness and whatever the Lord leads you to give towards these special summer activities.

Thank you for your support as we serve the Lord! For, without your help, it would not be possible to keep doing what we are doing for His glory! All is for Jesus and He is worthy of all service of sacrifice!

In His Service,

Elvira & Pastor Naim Khoury
