2012 Christmas Party In Armenia Bonito

IMG_3114On Saturday we hosted our 5th annual Christmas party for the kids in the super-poor community of Armenia Bonito. It was a wonderful event. Over 270 kids showed up. That is our largest Christmas party to date.

For the first time the Christmas party was held in our two-acre ministry center. Our team sang several songs with the kids. Our teammate Kate provided the kids with a wonderful gospel presentation. We concluded by giving each kid a plate of chicken, vegetables and rice and a Christmas gift. Some of the gifts were purchased here in La Ceiba and our supporting churches provided other gifts.

What a joy knowing 270 kids received a nutritious meal, a gospel presentation, a Christmas gift and the love and mercy of Jesus. If you want to watch a brief video of the event click HERE.
