SUPER SLIDE OPENS FOR CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PARTY!
The photos tell it all, as you can see the slide, and the monkey bars (attached to the right side of the slide), are all a bit hit with the children.
Just like any great playground, it was stand in line to take your turn. But with the slide accommodating 2 kids at a time, it only takes a few minutes of waiting before you start climbing the 2 story ladder to have another thrilling ride on the slide!
JESUS’ BIRTHDAY PARTY GREAT FUN FOR ALL!
170 orphans and street children attended our Christmas party and 2 of our fat goats along with 220 lbs (110kg) of rice provided the noon feast for the children and their foster mothers.
Photo shows the children all feasting on our great food.
Katie and Ashlynn commented on how quiet it got once the children were served. The kids were so busy eating, they didn’t utter a peep. For the street kids, it is the ONLY time they get meat and rice all year, so they were totally “focused” on eating.
To explain: the street children have parents, but most are left alone to fend for themselves during the day, and few get any lunch.
These children are regulars at our Sunday School program, as the love they feel there is like a magnet to those who are love starved.
Everyone who attended Jesus’ Birthday Party received 2 kinds of lolly pops and a packet of cookies as they left. It was smiles all around, as everyone left with a heart full of love and joy!
CHRISTMAS DAY ORPHAN TOY GIVE OUT
Can’t show all the photos of our orphans receiving their small trucks, cars, dolls and jump ropes, so I chose BABY DANIEL’s photo as he had the most unusual look on his face when he saw his toy (it lights up).
His “light up” octopus was an instant hit with all the orphans in Ernestina’s house. It was a joyful week and super fun for all of us.
We prayed for all of you and your families to have a wonderful Christmas.
Now we ask the Lord to keep you safe and provide you with a GOD BLESSED 2015, for it will be a year of many changes.
A full solar eclipse as well as the 3rd blood moon all appear in early March, which marks the 6th month of this Shemitah year.
All these signs are Biblical, marking the skies with signals that Jesus’ return is very near.
ARE YOU READY? GOD ANSWERS MY PRAYERS WITH MORE HELP ON THE WAY
Stephen Miller, experienced missionary who taught Bible to both Adults and children in Bali, Indonesia for 18 months, will be joining our team on Feb 4, 2015.
His pre-missionary work skills include truck driving, warehouse management, and inventory work. All of which will be very useful, since most of what I do is managing warehouses, taking inventory, and buying supplies as needed.
I am very grateful to God for providing a helper before the Balama Blazers complete their 1 year commitment during food buying time in 2015.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
