“It was a great day and I learned so many things from my teachers. I also learned about how God loves children and how important it is for me to read God’s word to please Him. I enjoyed the song ‘My name is so and so’, clay drawing and bottle game, ”Tuni of United Christian Prayer Fellowship, Lahorijan said after the camp.
Speaking at the closing service, Akum Amri stated, “A child whom God loves is like a strong tree planted by the water. Imagine a great and beautiful tree covered in green leaves.

Robin Mech of Gorkha Baptist Church thanked the organizers for conducting the children’s camp despite inclement weather and a tough terrain to reach the venue. He mentioned that the children of Khatkhati Area Churches came to this camp as ’empty vessels’ but they are going back home with God’s ‘wisdom’ and ‘blessings’.
