Training and Children’s Outreach Program

Saturday was a super busy day for us.  Not only did we have the JBQ meet, we had a training in the morning for Sunday School leaders and in the afternoon was a children program. A team from KidzRomania lead the training and the children’s program.  We had 30 people come to the training and over 75 kids came to the children’s outreach program.  I was able to rent a mini-bus and 32 kids from Stroiesti were able come to the program.  During the JBQ meet, Ana and Bogdan were super heroes and took the kids on a hike to the castle.   The kids really enjoyed their afternoon in the city and they got to hear about God’s plan for their lives!  What a great way to start a week of spring break!

JBQ

Our first Junior Bible Quiz meet went so well.  This is the first year for JBQ in the Suceava area and because of that only two teams competed.  And both teams were from Stroiesti; one with 4th grade girls and one with 7th and 8th grade girls. The JBQ officials from KidzRomania of Buchurest were really impressed with the two teams and said they were very well prepared for JBQ.  We had some other youth leaders who were interested in JBQ so we hope that next year we will have more teams.  Our next meet will be in May or June.

I’m thrilled to announce our individual awards: 3rd place: Gabita, 2nd place: Ioana G. and 1st place: Ana (yes, Janet, that would be YOUR Ana!)  The older girls’ team won, but the margin was really small.  I’m so proud of my girls!!
