“And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men”


Bible Camps for HOH Children

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, however, pictures don’t tell the whole story. The
picture to the left doesn’t even tell one story of the 100 precious children that the Valley Church Team
ministered to in two different weeks of Vacation Bible School at Habitation of Hope. Let me try to relate a blessing that touched all of our hearts during the last 24 hours of our last camp. Three years ago about 15 plus of these same children attended a Valley VBS camp where they learned different songs. But what we didn’t know is that they went back and taught them to the rest of the children at the Transformational Center. So the morning before they left we were together and they started singing the songs they had learned 3 years ago along with the songs from this year. The children who were new to the camp joined in and were also able to sing every word of all the songs! What a blessing, as a lot of the songs are
directly from the Bible and we are to speak to one another in songs, hymn’s and spiritual songs!

The Valley Church Team

The theme for the Valley Sports Camp was “More
than Conquerors!” The Bible stories were focused on David from the OT. The memory verses, crafts and puppets all fit into the theme - so it was repeated many times. The children were able to learn the songs and motions very quickly. We are glad that God’s Word is
in their hearts. We desire that all our children grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. Through your faithful support and the work of the Holy Spirit - it is becoming a reality. Several of these children made first time commitments to follow Jesus in these camps.


Because of Jesus,
