We had a carefree time, teaching and singing along with them.

We spent the free morning teaching and singing along with them. This dog wanders freely...even into our baths...tsk tsk!

Emphasizing the Bible Lesson with memory verses using 'magic' as the children put it!  The verses were prewritten in clear wax, when colored water were brushed over the words the words appeared.  It was magic to them ^_^

Our ministry with the children ended at 3pm when they dismissed from school.  We had a wonderful and blessed time with them.  They listened attentively and were participative throughout the time spent with them.  We truly enjoyed them.

Walking back with the children at about 3pm.  When we reached back at Ps Rolly’s house, we continued to teach the youth more songs and the dance movement of Worthy Is The Lamb.  We freshened up and 2nd night crusade started at 7.15pm.  There were about 70-80 in attendance for the crusade and many came forward for altar call.

The girls singing Ku Mahu Cinta Yesus Selamanya...they did amazingly well as they just learned it this morning and again before service started!

Spending time with the locals after the crusade.

After the fellowship, we ate dinner with Ps Rolly’s family.  Some youth hanged around to learn songs and we had a sing-along session before we retire.   It was just so awesome seeing their eagerness to learn and to share what they learned to the younger ones there.  They enjoyed our presence as much as we enjoyed theirs!  How blessed we were to experience such God loving and giving people.
