Vacation Bible School
This past January the FCM kids had a great time during VBS. The cowboy theme was embraced by all.
They enjoyed songs with silly hand motions, Bible stories & memorization of verses, games, and of course snack time. We all had a fun week! Thankful to be able to share in it with all the kids & FCM staff.

Back to School in February ~
School is back in session for the FCM kids, which means English classes have started back as well. I love getting in the classroom with these precious souls, even on the days they are rowdy. The children in the ministry who are not on grade level are taught on the FCM grounds. Teachers are brought in to teach the children much like a home school situation. In doing this, the teachers can help a child complete two years worth of work in one year, in order to help the child get caught up. For the children on grade level, they wear uniforms and attend a local public school. The school system in the country finishes at the 11th grade level. FCM currently has about 8 young men attending the local Universities or trade school. It is exciting to see these children who once had no hope because they were living on the streets, now receiving the care, love, discipline, and education they so desperately need in order to thrive in their own country.
