Thanks to many of you, this year’s Children’s Camp in Uganda was a huge success. 170 children gathered at our Family Centre for a weekend of fun and games and to learn new skills in the beautiful and peaceful countryside outside Kampala.
“I loved singing and dancing at the Kid’s Camp. I learnt how to pray and about sharing with others” – Deborah, 13
The Every Life Team, arranged games, challenges, crafts and team-building activities to encourage everyone to make friends and to learn how to work together.
“I really enjoyed the Camp fire. We had some lovely Christmas gifts, I made so many friends and I gave my life to Jesus and got baptised at the kids camp!” – Ashmin, 13
The team also told stories, taught new skills and spent time encouraging personal growth and in worship and discipleship with any of the children who were interested. At the end of the weekend around twenty chose to be baptised! “I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour.” – Grace, 10
What an amazing way to finish the year.
The money raised also went toward children’s christmas parties at our bases in Kisumu, Kenya and Tower Hamlets, UK, where our teams organised more games, crafts, food and fun. What a blessing to be able to bring joy to hundreds of children and families over Christmas. Thank you for making it possible!
