First VBS at Whatley Point of Hope!

Jul 20, 2022 | Faith Stories, Home Page, News

Because of you, our first mission team to Honduras was a success! This was our first VBS camp with the Whatley Point Of Hope kids in Honduras.
The community served by the Whatley Point Of Hope is in a very remote part of Honduras. The team travelled through miles and miles of Dole banana fields to get to a setting some on the team described as feeling very close to the early Church.
25 children who regularly attend the school played games, sang songs, did simple crafts, and learned memory verses over four days.
“The biggest joy was seeing the kids warm up to us on Day 2,” said Troy Campbell, one of the team.
One afternoon was rained out, which allowed for an impromptu worship service to be held by the team. This was a moment that really helped bond the team and ministry!
At the end of camp, the team dedicated the Center. The local parents were invited as well. Both Tim Oloffson, ACF Executive Director, and Dario Delarco, head of the Whatley Point Of Hope Center, shared with the families the benefits of these programs for the kids, their families, and the community.
Amber Broderson said of her experience: “It was amazing to make connections with the children despite the language barrier. It was heartwarming to see how God was working through the teachers to minister to the children.”
A local community member is donating land and funding to open a second Point Of Hope program in a nearby community. To sponsor a child at one of our Point Of Hope Centers, visit our child sponsor page.
