Nepal (MNN) — Vacation Bible School is often a person’s first introduction to Jesus Christ and His love.

Pastors and teachers in Nepal have been praying and preparing for thousands of children from all across South Asia to attend Vacation Bible School: a week filled with Bible stories, puppet shows, action songs, games, and nutritious food.

Prem came from a little village in Nepal and was one of 75,000 children who attended a Gospel for Asia VBS programs.

On the first day, Prem and his older sister arrived at the church after walking for hours. The pastor and VBS team enthusiastically welcomed them and 100 other children.

Coming from a non-Christian background, the 8-year-old had never heard Bible stories, seen a puppet show, or joined in action songs before.

But before the day was over, Prem had become the most excited participant of all.

Prem and the other children had such fun learning about the Lord Jesus Christ and His love for them through playing games, coloring pictures, singing songs, and memorizing Bible verses.

Though most of these children grew up in non-Christian families, their hearts were sensitive and responsive to their Creator. And before the VBS was over, Prem and 30 others kids decided to follow Christ.

VBS is just the beginning of their encounter with the love of Christ.

For $5 you can send a child to Gospel for Asia’s Vacation Bible School. You will impact the life of one child, who will go home and share with his or her family what he or she learned.
