For the fifth year in a row, you have brought great joy to the children of RCF. Their joy in celebrating the birth of Jesus is real. Like Jesus brought light into the world, their school brings love and light into their world that is often filled with fear and hopelessness.
Whether playing the part of an angel, a wiseman, or shepherd, the children ALL love to be part of the re-enactment of the Nativity story. They tell it with beauty and reverence. Especially captivating was the dancing of the angels around Mary and the baby Jesus.
Santa made a special visit and helped the staff pass out special gifts picked for each child. The children have so little to call their own, that they were thrilled to open the only gift they received this year. Warm clothes, shoes that fit, a jacket for winter, and of course some treats were given out to all 74 of our students.
Our Director and his wife wrapped all the gifts by hand and with love. All the kids jointed in a hearty meal together. There were dancing Santas and a dramatic depiction of how we can give the enemy less power through the power of prayer that God gives us.
In their world, Faith is what truly gets the children from day to day. In a country where Christians are not tolerated, YOU are letting the children know they are not forgotten and that you are praying for them and caring for them. This, along with the awesome education they are getting, gives them HOPE!
All the children send their love and thanks.....may you be blessed abundantly in 2019!
