Be the Light of the World Kids' Camp 2018

Updated: Mar 8, 2021

An often forgotten aspect of the persecution and differential treatment faced by pastors and ministry workers is the trauma and loneliness experienced by children of such pastoral workers. These children are rejected by other village children of their age and even their classmates do not associate with them. Sometimes even their parents do not have adequate time to spend with their children as they are occupied with ministry work. Like forgotten flowers, these young lives blossom in a dark corner, while the best years of their childhood are lived in sadness and without the joys only a childhood friend can offer. Then there are the children of pastors who serve amidst abject poverty. There are very few amenities afforded to such children and often their living conditions are not conducive for a happy childhood.

In a bid to reach out to such children, the Religious Liberty Commission organises an annual Kids Camp to offer a time of rest, relaxation, fun and respite from the troubles and difficulties they face at home. Over a period of 3 days, the children stay at a safe and secure environment at the NCEASL’s campsite – Sanctuary House.
