We had a sleepover at our house !
For the last few months, I had been thinking about doing some special activity just with the girls from the village where we have a childrens’ program, in Garcina. We focused on girls 7th grade and higher, those who are starting to face more challenges. Eight girls came to our house on a Friday and we spread out in the living room! We had a study on the girls’ future dreams and goals, and what character they wanted in the future, and at the same time had a meal, did nails, and just had time to chat.
These girls are growing up in some difficult conditions and sometimes don’t have the chance to share what they want or think they could do. We used a brochure I made with some questions to get us started, and after they had filled it out, we talked about it. I was pleased to hear the input from the girls. We also talked about some verses from Prov 2 & Prov 9 that say our value and what its like to stay near to God for life.
My wonderful husband was our chef 🙂 , and some of the girls helped him in the kitchen. We had a dinner of spaghetti & meat sauce and made a dessert and cracker mix together with the girls. I am thankful also for two special ladies & their input, Margareta and Dorina. They both had contact with these girls in the past with various activities, and came to the sleepover as well. We are praying for the future of these girls, and that they find their true purpose for living in God’s ways.
