Annual Children’s Vacation Bible School held at the San Pedro Lions’ Den


For the third consecutive year, The Eastern Assembly of God, located in Baltimore, Maryland USA has been sending mission teams to the island town of San Pedro. The teams conduct an annual Children’s Vacation Bible School (VBS), which this year, hosted one hundred to one hundred and twenty five children.

Easter Bible School-2
This year’s team consisted of 15 members, including Children’s Pastor Kristin Alt, Youth Pastor Jared Michael, and Young Adult Pastor Danielle Stiles. This year’s program aims at educating children in the fundamentals of the Christian Faith. The four day VBS program which commenced on Tuesday April 5th, offers a variety of fun Bible based activities including arts, crafts, skits, games, Bible lessons and worship. In addition to a fun program the team is also doing their part to help equip students for the class rooms by providing children with school supplies, and other fun treats, including bicycle giveaways for one lucky little boy and girl!

In preparation for the fun filled week, the team worked hard at preparing lessons and skits that would foster effective ministry to the various age groups of children that would be present. The smile that the Vacation Bible School has put on the faces of the children of San Pedro is proof enough of a job well done! Kudos Guys!
