5 more days till Christmas…

Soon, people across the world will be celebrating one of our most significant holidays, Christmas, standing still by the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. What a gift.

IMG_4070[1].JPGSharing Christmas with the children in the Child Sponsorship Program (CSP) was a special time, they showed up in their Sunday best and their parent/caretaker accompanied them. What a great opportunity to share with the kids Jesus THE Reason for the season, singing songs, presenting the birth of Jesus from the Bible and acting out the “Jesus Christmas Party” from the innkeeper’s perspective. They enjoyed candy, popcorn, a drink and going home with a bag full of presents and their monthly food supply.

As fun as the Christmas celebration was, my special moments were the next day, while walking through the village many of the kids were playing with their new toys and big smiles were on many faces.

We feel loved and blessed.

With Christmas only days away, we want to wish you many special moments during this special season.

Drop us a line, we love to hear from you

Rene and Marianne
