This was the feedback from of one of the leaders of the Holiday Bible Club hosted by Lenasia Church of the Nazarene – where 1900 children participated in otLIVE over the course of the week.

Testimonies from some of the children…
I have learnt that God can make anything happen if you come to him in prayer. God is with you throughout the way. I really liked acting out the Bible with the hand signs and I understand the Bible better now. I didn’t go to Children’s Church before. I hope to go now.
~Caleb (12)

 

I never grew up reading the Old Testament – so I never understood about Abraham, Isaac and all those people. But now I have started reading the Bible for myself.
~Nicholas (12)

 

I am learning what I didn’t know before and I understand the Bible more. The lessons also reminded me about respecting God and helping each other.
 ~Shikar (14)

 

otLIVE makes me want to participate. The hand signs are so fun!
 ~Mishaelin (11)

 

Now I will be able to read the Bible.
~Keisha (11)

 

I felt good and normal being here. I like the story about Joshua. The lessons also reminded me about respect – and not dissing others and my parents.
~Lettie

 

~I will remember that it went well with Joseph because he obeyed God.
Shirley (12)

 

I like the story of Samson. It reminded me about not letting people force you into things. I also really enjoyed the hand signs and I can do them for my family. I am reading my Bible.
~Joy

 

My favourite story was about Joshua and learning to be strong and courageous.
~Rethabile (10)

 

Jacob was a wrestler! That’s cool!
~Tiano (10)

 

I liked the explaining of the stories. Now the Bible will be easier to read.
~Ruwani (12)

I learnt about forgiving and not being cruel to others – like Joseph.
~Talicia (12)

I am happy to be here. I am learning to not swear and to show respect.
~Kgakhiso

These hand signs will help me! I liked learning about Moses – and the waters parting and the staff and the snake. The stories teach me that we must obey God at all times.
~Andisa (10)

 

And from some of the volunteers…

I am a volunteer here and I have also brought my own kids to attend Holiday Bible Club. What is amazing is that the kids remember most of the otLIVE lesson and are really motivated. The hand signs really help.
~Aasiyah

 

The children are enjoying the hand signs. They pick them up easily, are learning quickly and are able to repeat them. They are really grasping the lessons from the stories.
~Deon

 

The kids were enthusiastic and excited about otLIVE – eagerly anticipating what they were going to be taught next!
~Pam

 

otLIVE really made the stories easier to understand. The actions and hand signs especially helped the kids.
~Jessica

And from others…

“I am learning so much from otLIVE. This has meant so much to me.”

“otLIVE is such an easy and light way to get through lots of content and to understand the Bible.”

“I take leave from work just to help here at the Holiday Bible Club!”

“I will remember the smiles on the kids’ faces. OtLIVE really helped to simplify things – I used to get stuck trying to remember everything!”
