Christmas party at the Mission


Today the children at the mission were blessed with a wonderful time, of playing...

...jumping on the jumping castle....



These two face painting clowns were kept busy with our many children...they all wanted their faces painted.



...from the youngest baby...



..to some of the grown ups.



 



 
Happy dancing William.



 
 
We have the most gorgeous and well behaved children.



At twelve o'clock all 116 children were bundled into the dining hall to receive gifts.



Father Christmas arriving to very excited children.



Happy children make me feel happy.  There is no way to thank all the wonderful people who supplied gifts and refreshments.  They are sowing on fertile ground...these little ones will never forget it.  In most cases these will be the only gifts they receive.

  10. As you say, it warms one's heart to see children happy. I must also say that those two clowns have created the most beautiful painted faces I have seen.
