The coordinator of the vacation Bible school, Mrs. Rhoda Awurabena Appiah, who is also principal Public Relations Officer of the Public Procurement Authority, at the opening ceremony said the event would serve as a platform inculcate the word of God deeper into the hearts of the children  in preparation for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Those of us in the children ministry usually don’t get ample time to during church service to delve deeper into the word of God and analyze it to our satisfaction. it is based on this that we have developed this programme to enable us give more Bible Lessons to the young children  to empower them. We are taking them through the stories of Neyman, the Samaritan woman, Paul and Silas in the New Testament among others.

We have brought children from the New Legon Preparatory School, Baloga Preparatory and the Big Family Schools as well as Christian and non Christian kids who live within the Japan Motors and Housing Down Communities..
This is the maiden edition of the event and we hope to make it an annual event.
According to Mrs. Rhoda Appiah, participating kids are also assisted to undertake international Bible Correspondence courses   and would be awarded certificates.
