Christmas Program at the Orphanage

We were so happy to be invited to the Christmas play at the orphanage.  The kids did a great job.  We really enjoyed it.

We received about 20 Christmas boxes specifically for the orphanage.  There are 130 kids and teens there.  The orphanage receives Christmas boxes from Germany for all the children (since the program was open to the public, there were even boxes for all the guest, even Matt).  With the boxes we received, we made a list of children who were at camp and held them after the program.  The 20 boys and girls got two boxes this year.  They were really happy.  The orphanage staff has asked us to concentrate on the puzzles and games for the apartments instead of Christmas boxes for the kids;  these puzzles, games and group craft activities are producing great teamwork and developmental progress in the kids.  We’ll work on this for next year.  I did get a chance to talk to some of the kids and they shared that they really enjoyed the games and puzzles.  One apartment of girls had already finished a 1000 piece puzzle and it was glued and put on the wall.  They were already tackling another one!

Thank you to everyone who made boxes for the children at the orphanage. Enjoy these pictures of smiling faces:
