Kids learnt how to create Bible content (Vblogs) for Digital platforms.About 40 children from 5 churches attended the Bible Funshop organised by the BSI Allahabad Auxiliary.

We had a great time together reading and learning from the Bible. The theme of the Bible Funshop was THE BIG PICNIC (based on the story of Jesus feeding the 5000). The kids engaged in deep conversations about what we can give to Jesus and how we see what we have multiply and become a blessing to many, if only we can trust Jesus!
