New Life Community Church VBS raises $1100 for orphans in Uganda

One of our favorite things to do is educate kids about the needs of orphans and how they can make a difference! We had so much fun visiting with the Vacation Bible School at Life Community Church in Greensboro, NC this past week. We were told that these kids normally raise on average $700 for their VBS mission project. They were very receptive when we explained the plight of the orphan and how their 14 cents could feed a child in Uganda, Africa. The challenge was given on Tuesday and by Friday these kids had collected $1100! That’s close to 8000 meals for kids in Uganda! They also collected toiletry items and donated VBS supplies. Our CP mission team will deliver the food and toiletries in September and we'll be able to go back to Life Community and show the kids where their money went!

If your VBS is looking for a mission project, please give us a call! We can provide a speaker, video, project and follow up to help your kids catch the vision.
