VBS in Lima, Peru

Each year in February the childcare centers in Lima hold a Vacation Bible School for one week.  The children learn Bible stories and memorize a verse each day.  They play games, sing songs and do crafts...similar to VBS in America just with a little less production :).  At the end of the week there is an award ceremony where the children who learned all the verses, those who arrived to VBS on time each day, and the teams who won the games receive prizes.  This year the prizes were beanie babies, necklaces, and bags of candy.  Enjoy the pictures!
