Christmas Shopping

One of my favorite things to do each year is take children from the orphanage shopping. Some of my favorite sponsors  came up with this idea a few years ago and others have joined them. This year, we have take 7 children/teens shopping and have 3 more to take later on in December.  Each child is given the equivalent of $50 and taken shopping,  but based on prices etc…think of it as taking a kid to Walmart and giving them $200 and say….”get what you need and what you want!!! ” Unlike most American kids I know, these kids are first after new shoes, coats, underwear and socks, clothes, shampoo, school supplies and then they head to the toy aisle.  We also give them an one kilogram bag of candy to share with the others with their apartment group home family.  It is such a blessing for these children! Thank you!!!
