The end of April, my wife, Monica, traveled to Patos with the AME (Adventures in Evangelistic Missions) group to have VBS with the church there. It was the first VBS for the AME class and for the church in Patos, the first one in about 10 years.
Monica said that there were 24 children on the first day and 26 on the second. It was a weekend VBS, Saturday morning, afternoon and Sunday morning.
They also did a campaign around the church building inviting people to the VBS, the church meeting, and an adult class on Friday night. They also had a couples meeting as well as a youth group meetings happening in between other activities.
Needless to say, they were pretty busy. They all came back excited and uplifted. One of the AME students said he would like to spend his one year on the mission field in Patos to help the youth group grow and mature.
· That God may help the church in Patos mature spiritually
· That God may help the youth in the church give their lives wholly and fully to God.
