Celebrating Birthdays

An Sunday School update from Ana:

Sunday School was good. 45 kids. We did the birthdays. The kids born in December, January and February with a minimum of 5 points got a small present (a hat, gloves, a toy and some candy) and a cake.12 kids had birthdays!

 

We have one girl who wants to come to camp and so far is doing great with her points.  But all of a sudden her mom won’t let her come to Sunday School.  We know her parents are divorced, so we aren’t sure if this has anything to do with her not being allowed to come to Sunday School. Please pray for this family.  That this girl will be able to come back to Sunday School and go to camp.. she really enjoys the program.  Ana will contact them soon to get to the bottom of it all. Pray for Ana!!

Send a kid to camp

We are preparing for summer camp and we need your help.  We have 50 kids who want to come to camp and they each need sponsors. I have launch a new page on the blog with information about summer camp.  You can see who has been sponsored.  Check back for updates!

Sunday School in the Winter

We got a report from Ana saying that the temperature has been down to -30 c, that would be -22 f.  Man, we are not missing that cold.  Some of the schools in Romania have been cancelled because of the cold temps and so much snow.  Please pray for warmth for the folks there.  Ana has reported however, that the kids are still coming to Sunday School.

We had 30 kids in spite of the horrible weather.  In the pictures you’ll see the kids doing their craft projects. Some have chosen the coloring sheet, others have chosen to write a letter (from the king of Syria to the king of Samaria). We talked about Naaman and his leprosy. The best 3 or 5 letters will get a point. And we also gave them some pocket verses at the end of our meeting. If they learn that verses as well, they can get a point. I’m not as generous as you think, but these seemed to me good opportunities to give them some extra points.

Ana and the team are doing a great job coming up with fun indoor activities for the kids this winter. And as you can tell those kids are working hard to earn points for summer camp.  The kids need 60 points to come to camp.  Many have already earned half of their points and they still have 4 months plus to earn more!  I’m so proud of these kids!  Please continue to pray for them.
