(You can click any pic to enlarge and press “back” to return)After lots of preparation and pre-prayer-ation, we launched our annual holiday club. On Day ONE we had 58 children and 20 enthusiastic leaders. Our theme is “Mission Rescue” and the holiday club has a spy-theme and focuses on the story of Moses and the Exodus. Our first day was a great success and we hope it just gets better and better.
Weeks before Brenda, Diana and their helpers have been slaving to get ready for today, the crafts have been prepared, cookies baked and our awesome team of leaders (mostly teens with a few young adults in the mix) spent Saturday in training. You have to admire the dedication as it was only 2°C at 10h00 on Saturday. On Sunday the chairs were moved and we are ready to go.
Monday morning dawned, a bit warmer than the three before and the leaders were there by 6h55. The final pre-briefing done, the kids started pouring in. Games were played and groups were set up. Names, passwords and disguises were the order of the day along with the gripping drama “Who’s the Mole?” with agents M, O, S, E and Z. Just who will the mole be?? Spy Chief Theo talked to the kids about how God rescued Moses to be His Secret Agent to rescue His people.
Then it was time for games and relays. Followed by tea, cookies, crafts, quiet-times and singing!
Before we knew it, day one was done! But never fear there’s always day two!
