Since we are on the subject I thought I would share about another fun endeavor we did end of last year…..
This past December we had a big Christmas Celebration in one of the poverty stricken areas near us. We targeted the children with an emphasis to tangibly show them the love of Christ. Kids adorned in ratty clothes spent the day jumping on inflatable jumping castles, eating sweets, playing games, and watching puppet shows. They left with smiling, painted faces, upset stomachs (from too much sugar), prizes, their very own Christmas present and for most the Lord in their hearts. We’ve posted some of the pictures in the photo gallery of our website if you would like to take a gander!
Our ministry does a few different things with and for the people of Africa. Where humanitarian aid isn’t a primary focus we try to incorporate it in different ministry ventures. And although it is a mere drop in the bucket to what is needed here it is definitely one of the highlights for me…..the joy it brings is just awesome!
