Monday and Tuesday of this week we had a holiday club here in Peru in a place called Huambutio. It was held outside in the grounds of the school, and ran from 10am to 12 pm each day. The programme was fairly standard for a holiday club with craft, games, music, songs, teaching and stories. However, the event itself was anything but standard. Both mornings we started about 10.45am (children arriving late on the first day and the late arrival of the person opening up on the second day), giving us lots of time to fill with the children who turned up roughly on time.
Once we got started each day there was lots of fun with the singing, craft and games.
There were some very dramatic stories, and teaching which left the children with the message of Jesus love, in a situation where love is not always present in their lives. One of the children commented to Scott that he would always remember about Jesus love, but said that there wasn't much love at his house.
One of the most exciting aspects of the club was the way that so many people worked together from the church. It was great to see so many people involved, and so many people having such a great time together.
So that was a taste of our holiday club, report on the youth camp to follow...
