You will need to buy the VOM VBS pack. It is incredibly complete. Homeschool students or Christian Schools could use it for their Bible curriculum for a semester.
The Jail is optional, but the children are completely fascinated by it. I’m not sure if they have grasped the full meaning of it. I think I need to bring in a potential meal. I should ask my friends if they have any food “growing” in their refrigerators. If they will admit it, we could use it. Other wise, I better make some rice and beans right now so I have time for them to “ferment.” The stinkier the better.

8′ x 10′ jail cell may hold as many as 8 adults in a Vietnam jail. Ours is made out of card board, boards, and a tarp. It is definitely much cleaner. I’m sure the public health inspecter would have problems with us recreating a more “realistic” jail cell. I will try to do my best to help the kids understand that persecuted christian all over the world aren’t living in a cardboard doll house. (Which is the thought they have right now–uhg)
