It is been the 2nd year for volunteers of Hope for Everyone Ministries to do the camp for the village children. Praise God that notwithstanding many obstacles He made it happen. The camp has been a great blessing for the village people. 64 children attended the camp during 5 day. At the camp we had different activities with the children - Bible lessons, crafts, games, all-camp games. Our drama team performed different skits from Jesus' life.
