It is always great to see the smiles on my kids faces when they know that they have a sponsor for the new school year and will be blessed with their school uniforms, shoes, backpacks and school supplies. Unfortunately, you won't see those smiles in these pictures. Put a camera in front of them and they rarely smile. I promise you before they can take a step away they are smiling. Crazy kids!!!! Below are the pictures of the kids receiving their packages. If you are a sponsor and sent your child money or a special gift you should see that picture here also. If you sponsored a child who lives at the orphanage those pictures will come later. Those kids have to have special uniforms made so I will get those pictures once they receive them.
In addition to their school stuff we blessed each child with a great Christmas Toy packet. This year several partners blessed me with extra money and I took that money and went shopping on Black Friday. God blessed me tremendously with great sales and I in turn blessed by kids with great toys.
In addition to 120 kids attending school this year we have 6 kids attending college and one will be graduating in May from college. This is a true testimony to God. Without the support of their sponsors it would be impossible for them to go to college. These students are the first of their entire generations who have ever graduated from high school much less attended college. These students are going to be social workers, teachers, and nurses and all want to help their community with the skills they have learned. I am so proud of them and so proud to be a part of watching an entire community see the blessings of God in their lives.
The pink bags are the toy bags and candy and the black bag are their school supplies.
Enjoy the pictures.
