Christmas Boxes Part One: Stroiesti

We passed out close 200 boxes on Saturday after the children in our Sunday School program did a great job on their Christmas show!  The room was packed with parents, classmates, and friends. The choir from Diakonia joined us again and shared the message of Christmas in song.   The teens shared poems and songs, and the children did 2 skits.  One skit, reminding us that Christmas isn’t about shopping, trees, cards, or parties, but is about Jesus.  The other skit was a funny little skit in English.  The skit kept getting “messed up” so they had to try it again happier, sadder, faster, slower and eventually I gave up and just told them to do the skit in Chinese.  It was hilarious.  Kelvey, a young lady from America, has been here for the Christmas break and even played Santa Claus in the skit.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored a child for Christmas, to everyone who made a shoebox for Christmas, who gathered supplies for boxes, and who prayed for us this Christmas.  We could not do it without you.

In typical Romanian fashion, most of the kids did not smile for their picture and I wasn’t taking pictures, so they didn’t get “forced” to smile. But here are some of the cute pictures.  If you made a box and don’t see it, let me know and I’ll send you the picture. We took a photo of every child on Saturday with their box.

  1. Did Bogdan get his present from us. I’m afraid I didn’t mark it too well.

  2. He did! His mom brought him. The picture isn’t good at all, but I can send it! It was marked fine because I was in charge and know all things Christmas boxes!
