MHA/VBS are Uganda Bound »
Over Spring Break, fourteen Mile High Academy students will head to Uganda on a mission trip to share God's love with Uganda's children through a Vacation Bible School program.
This student-led project is part of a middle school Real World Learning class that will go live in Uganda. Students are developing curriculum, readying songs and stories, assembling materials needed for crafts, and carefully packing it to take with them to Uganda.
In preparation, the students are practicing their VBS program on MHA's preschool and kindergarten students. Facilitated by their teacher, Mrs. Christina Hernandez, students learn the art of enthusiastic storytelling, collaborate on song leading, and adjust the curriculum where needed, making it just right for their audience of discerning little ones.
Eighth grader, Otim, is quick to point out that VBS is going to be an “awesome experience for the kids in Uganda.” He’s also anxious to use the teaching he’s learned on his real audience.
One Uganda-bound 8th grader, Braden, said, “It has been a humbling experience to learn that what I have taken for granted is going to be so exciting for the kids when we get to Uganda.”
