Korea's Ansan Adventist Multi-cultural Family Service Center Holds Winter VBS
The Ansan Adventist Multi-cultural Family Service Center in Korea held a Winter Vacation Bible School (WVBS) for the many children attending the center. This WVBS was held as a result of the growing number of children enrolled at the 'Mother & Child Establishment' and the 'Kindergarten' business, established to help spread the gospel to the children and their families.
Thirty multi-cultural kids attended Bible school and listened to the Bible stories told engagingly by senior pastor Young-soo Kim. The children wrote letters to Jesus, learned new songs, and played interesting recreational games. As a follow up to the meetings a festival was organized by the Russian School and Kindergarten where the children learned action songs and dances.
Through this WVBS the children learned about Jesus and enjoyed many different activities. Service center leaders believe it’s important to educate about their faith at a young age. They plan to develop the program into a Sabbath School and Pathfinder curriculum in the church for the near future.
Despite the cold weather this past January, the children of the center went to the Happiness Etiquette Education Center in Ansan city to learn about the Korean traditional New Year's Bow and to experience the traditional way of drinking tea. They had fun together learning to play yut, how to wear Han-bok, and practicing New Year's Bow.
