Dear Hopefuls,

Thanks be to God for your kind generosity and hospitality towards my ministry and stay at the Stone Mansion this past week.

Vacational Bible School Testimonies from
Students and helpers

I had great fun at VBS. The games were fun. I also learned a lot.
Jason Teng

My reflections on VBS
I like VBS because it was fun watching the power points and the cartoon on the power points that Uncle Hai Seng drew. I wish it would go on for the whole school holidays. I would definitely come next year.
Rachel Ting

I like VBS because of the games, movie, refreshments and slide shows.
Samuel Ting

Elaine's Testimony
I liked the games and stories. I don’t like the songs. I liked the craft too.
Elaine Lov

I like playing the games. I like singing and the story - Adam and Eve.
Ethan Lov

I like stories in VBS and I also like arts and games.
Parshad Sankey

I had fun at VBS. I liked the stories and the games. VBS was cool. I also learned a lot.
Vaibhav Sankey

I liked VBS because you can learn about God and games and craft.
Bonita Khchao

I enjoyed VBS because we learn about God and we learn interesting stories. I would certainly come to VBS again.
Angela Barr

I learnt that no matter what you are, how you look, God always loves you! God tests people to see if they love God more than anyone in the world
Emily Barr

What I liked about VBS is that God loves me and I learnt Bible verses and I had a very good time, everyone was very nice

This VBS was an enjoyable experience which was educational and fun. It also helped me learn more about the Word of God with various scripture verses and Bible Stories. This VBS was great in summary.
Divya Pratap

I like the games because it’s fun and you can run away to get something.

TV is good. I like TV.

Even though I was a helper I enjoyed all the stories. Eg Hermie and the Water Beetles were sporkishly Schmicko. Thank you Uncle Hai Seng.
Daniel Ki

VBS was quite fun even though I was helping. Hermie and Flo were sporkish and the Water Beetles are now my fav friends. I thought the stories were good and the ‘Sporks’ rule! I thought I learnt a bit and the kids were enthusiastic. Thank you Uncle Hai Seng
Samuel Ki

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
Thank and praise God for the opportunity to learn from both Uncle Hai Seng and the little ones. I may be a “helper” yet, I’m being helped in many ways. Will do it again God willing!
