8 March, Women’s Day fun!

We made some special visits with the children from the children’s program in the village of Garcina, to bless their mothers.

We had fun preparing the supplies, then went to the doors of the houses of children who come regularly to the program on Wednesdays.  Look at these girls how they pitch in and are such good helpers !!

Then it was time to make the deliveries!  It was sprinkling a little bit at the beginning, but then the weather cleared up, thank you Lord!!  We were glad for special time to talk with the parents for some small talk.  With these kids, we made a Christmas skit in winter and it turned out nicely.  We started working through a Children’s Bible with them with questions and memory verses in fall, and now we are at Isaac & Rebekah.

Saturday Awana programs in 2016

The Saturday children’s program started on Jan 16, together with some church members who make part of our team.  Luci and I were spending some time with family at that time in the States, but the team went continually on Saturdays to spend time with the children in two orphanages, Elena Doamna & Ion Creanga.  The children were between 7-14 years old.

When we arrived back in Feb, we joined up with the team again and saw the good routine they had had with the kids.  Needless to say, our first Saturday back with the kids was joyful & energetic!  I’ll include some pictures from that day, February 27th. The kids had started some lessons on Adam & Eve when we were gone, and worked through a Children’s storybook Bible with Cain & Abel, and then Noah & his sons.
