The final day before the Christmas break we had our annual Christmas celebration at the school. Last year was a Christmas cantata and family dinner. This year was a field day full of exciting games and competitions. Shawn is always mixing it up, and does a great job of always having Jesus the number reason for doing something. The children enjoyed making Christmas crafts, had snowball fights (using soft plastic balls), a reindeer relay, a water balloon toss and many other games. It was exciting to watch the kids have a great time, and seeing the smiles on their faces. We had prizes and candy for every event so every child was a winner in some way throughout the day.
Shawn even organized a gift exchange so that each child got a gift. It was so wonderful to see all of the kids as they received their gifts. Throughout it all Jesus was the main focus of everything. Jesus is always the reason for the season! As the children left for the day, Shawn and the staff ensured that each child remembered that. Praise God at the school we use every opportunity to share Jesus with the children. Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support. We would also like to thank Momma Clark for making sure all of our crafts, prizes and supplies for our games made it in time for our party day. Thanks to friends who sent baking supplies. Many people enjoyed the treats we made with the supplies you sent. Every day, you are a part of blessing the people in the
Running with the Vision,
