A BIG THANK YOU to you all who came, supported, volunteered or participated in the 1st KidsGames event in Muscat, Oman during 2 consecutive Thursdays in November, 2010! Over 200 children from different churches, denominations, communities and schools attended the event and had a fantastic time and enjoyed closer friendship with other kids.
Jess Manglicmot officially starting Kids Games 2010! Jess is responsible for the youth programs in the PCO (Protestant Church of Oman) and it’s amazing how much energy he has!
Sami from “Black Stallion Martial Arts“, a gym that runs out of the Falaj Hotel in Ruwi. They have classes every weekday evening. He did an impressive demonstration for the kids at the beginning of the Kids Games events. Check out one short clip I took of him in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huboAGpLjSQ
Wow! Kids, don’t try this at home!
Just look at that determination!
Kids were placed into different teams and given a country team name such as the “South Africa” team you see here who were the champions at “Catch the Tail”!

KIDSGAMES is a worldwide phenomenon connecting children with Jesus using Sports & Games, the Bible, creativity and fun all integrated into an easy-to-run initiative.
A team that prays together, stays together!
