As most of you know, Christmas is HUGE in the Philippines. We have been listening to Christmas music since September to give you a little insight. This Christmas, the kids and staff had a big party a week before Christmas! It was a fun time full of games, yummy food, gifts, and a photo booth! Thank you to all who donated supplies and helped provide funds to make Christmas special this year. A big dinner was prepared for Christmas Eve and a special breakfast of French toast and a day of relaxing on Christmas Day.
New Years Eve
New Years Eve is also really big in the Philippines. The kids enjoyed watching movies all evening, a midnight dinner, and watching the endless amount of fireworks set off all through out Manila! We are looking forward to 2018 and all that God has in store for our kids at New Faith! Please pray for us as this year will be a year full of many adoptions. We thank the Lord for every adoption but with each adoption comes with big transitions for the children being adopted, and those not. We thank you for all your support in 2017 and in advance, we thank you for your love and support for 2018! Without all our supporters, we could not show Jesus’ love to these precious children everyday.
The Mind Museum
The Friday before Christmas, the kids had the opportunity to go to The Mind Museum in the city! They loved it and learned a lot about science through interactive exhibits, minute-to-win-it games, and science displays. Thank you to the organization, Children's Hour for providing this enriching outing over Christmas Break!
Prayer Requests and Praises
Praise and prayer for the upcoming adoptions of three of our kids that should be going home with their forever families in the next month or so.
Pray for the hiring of educated, passionate, and trained staff.
