A short word from some of the participants of Vacation Bible School

Thank you for teaching the story of Esther. I really enjoyed learning the story about Esther. My favourite thing was to play the sword drill.  I really enjoyed VBS.  

VBS was heaps of fun this year. I enjoyed the games and  learning about chariots of fire the best. I also enjoyed decorating the plates and cups. Thank you Uncle Hai Seng.

I love God.  
Byul Kim.

I like the art and craft.  I met lots of people. I had lots of fun. Thank you God for VBS.  

I think VBS is really fun and our team won the game (pink) and I had many candy and it was fun. I like Uncle Hai Seng’s story.

I liked Uncle Hai Seng teaching us about Esther and Mordecai.  

I really enjoyed the game especially “shoe” game and the Treasure Hunt. It was really exciting and funny, but I didn’t like the memory verse. I was really disappointed when we didn’t win, but I had a really good time. I also like Esther and the Chariot of Fire story, but I liked Esther more.  Also choco-pie and chips were my favourite treat.

I really enjoyed the Bible School. I would like to learn more about Queen Esther and I will learn more about God from my Dad.
Grace Lee.

Thank you.

I like church. I love God. I like Eu Jzin and Daniel.

I liked playing the games, the food and art. I didn’t like the singing. My favourite helper was Sam.

I think this year’s VBS was really fun! I have learnt so much more memory verses and Uncle Hai Seng’s cartoon drawings and story telling were really good. I also liked the groups and teams that we had. My team won.
I think it was not bad. I liked playing the games.
Kevin Kim.

This year’s VBS was really fun and I made many friends. I liked a game. It was fun. I liked Uncle Hai Seng’s stories too.
Ja Ja Kim.

I loved games and some activities. I really enjoyed VBS and I think I learnt more about God. I can remember the Bible pledge. I want to come here next year too. I love God!
Amy Lee.

I think VBS is a great thing because when you have had a long boring and tiring term at school and discover you are not doing much in the holidays, VBS is something you can look forward to. It’s educational, fun and a fantastic way to lean about the Bible.

I liked games with friends. I want to come here again. Young Jun.

I have enjoyed craft and games the most because the craft was cool and so were the games.

I liked the teachers. I like the mask making. I like games.
Hye Won.

I really enjoyed the Quiz and I liked games. Thank you for your presents. I loved to hear your stories. Thank you.

I have enjoyed making and playing games. Most of all games was the best.  

Thank God for VBS. Thank God for Uncle Hai Seng. I will remember the Bible verses that I learnt. I like VBS.
Wha Won.
