VIC classes taught in public schools

Various PAMI pastors, workers, and Emmaus Bible Institute students are teaching Values Instruction Classes in elementary and high school public schools throughout the Province.  These are 30 minute classes taught weekly using Christian based curriculum and training from the Matthew 18:14 organization.  This public service is an avenue for connecting with families and the community, as well as exposing kids to Christian values.  It’s interesting that the Philippine government actually encourages churches to help install values to students, instead of worrying about separation of church and state like in the U.S.  EBI VIC teachers are becoming well-respected by public school teachers, principals, and town officials.  Sis Ofel has even been asked to be a commencement speaker.  Increased familiarity also means students and parents will be more open to joining other ministries of EBI or attend church at Emmaus Christian Fellowship.  For instance, some of these students will later be recipients of Operation Christmas Child boxes and discipleship, or become Compassion sponsored kids.  The first few photos are from a Matthew 18:14 training session:
