Posts in Schools - Drama
Today the drama, music and sports team participated on Assembly Day. We performed the “Set Me Free” drama from Casting Crowns. This is a story about a man trapped in his sin, wanting to remain in his sin as well as wanting to get free from it. His escape was only possible through Christ. The children really enjoyed the drama. They were singing and clapping when the music team sang.
Afterward, we had three drama lessons. The subject was denial—it was about a man who denied his drug addiction when confronted by his friends. We then asked the students if they knew what denial was and some of our team members shared their testimonies on the subject.
As we explained the transformation that God has done in our lives, the children grew really excited. The drama teacher told one of our team members that her testimony touched her. We know that Christ is drawing her and has a plan for her life.
Today our team along with several of the business team traveled to The Haven, a Christian drug rehabilitation Center. Upon our arrival, we took a mini-tour of the facilities and understood why it had been named The Haven.
The Haven nestled amongst the rolling hills of Scotland was beaming with warmth and love as we entered. The young men who make this their home touched each one of us as they shared their past lives with us. It was evident that they are being restored and the fragments of their broken lives are piecing back together, by the power of God.
We performed the “Set Me Free” drama in the chapel room. It was a tight squeeze!
Many of the young men related to temptations depicted in the drama. Three from our team shared their testimonies.
We were privileged to join the boys for lunch afterwards. Our team then headed to the Town Hall to rehearse for the upcoming Youth Rally which will be held on Friday.
The Drama Team and 13 team members from the choir piled into our vehicles to reach our destination…a quaint little village called Queries. As we pulled up a huge sign adorned the church indicating that it was for sale a year ago! Thankfully we discovered that the church was vacant but the members were now assembling at a nearby rented local church.
We were greeted by a few of the locals and their faces were beaming with excitement as we entered and searched for a seat. The pastor opened up with a few announcements and welcomed the visiting team. The worship team led us in a few worship songs and shortly after the TSC choir opened up in worship. Our team performed the drama that we had rehearsed earlier in the day. The drama depicts the different sins and distractions that separate us from Christ even when we have a relationship with him. Although the DVD skipped (ouch) a couple of times during the drama, the message was conveyed to those who were watching. Many were touched by the drama and the testimonies that came forth afterwards.
The pastor shared with us that the youth that attended the service tonight, were first timers. After the service one of the youth shared that he indentified with the sins represented in the drama. We invited him along with the others to the Youth Rally on Friday, November 13. Although there was a small congregation we know without a doubt that hearts were reached tonight. The scripture that talks about Jesus leaving behind the 99 sheep to pursue the one that was lost was powerfully demonstrated tonight.
