Thank you for joining the team of people who made summer camps possible this year for children in Sierra Leone!
The donations you and other sponsors gave through our special Easter card fundraiser earlier this year provided the
resources needed to make summer camps a special time for the children.
This year’s summer camps in Sierra Leone were led by COTN staff and volunteers from visiting Venture teams, who
also contributed funds and resources to make the camps possible.
Three days of soccer camp were held on July 17, 18, and 22 at the COTN campus in Ngolala Junction. Two hundred
children and youths attended! Eight teams—male and female—were formed. Prayers were said before and after the
matches, and the Word of God was preached before the matches and during training sessions. Other soccer camps
were also held throughout the summer.
Other summer camps followed a Vacation Bible School format, giving children the opportunity to play games, eat nutritious meals, participate
in crafts, and hear the gospel message.
Coloring is serious business!
Sharing biblical lessons with children in the village of Jiminga.
Getting into praise and worship.
Time to eat!
It’s because of your support that we’re able to share God’s love with children in Sierra Leone in this special way. Thank you!
