Christmas Outreaches in March
Posted by danneker on April 4th, 2021 | 7 comments
Christmas in March! Why not? If you remember, all our Christmas outreaches had to be canceled less than 12 hours before they were about to begin. Our province was the epicenter of the COVID wave that started mid-December, with more than 15,000 infections. The government was very quick to test, isolate, and restrict movement. Schools in our province were closed and then on-line. Church services had to be virtual as well.
Praise God, things improved. By the end of February, the situation was under control with the infection rate much lower and traceable. Schools began to open for in-person learning. The two schools where we had scheduled Christmas outreaches allowed us to come in March. The smaller school of 50 children gave us the full two hours. The other school of 120 elementary students allowed about a half hour. We are thankful the children got the hear the true meaning of Christmas and finally receive the gifts we had prepared of school supplies, treats and children’s literature about Christmas. Pray that the seeds of the Gospel that were planted in the hearts of the students and teachers will bear fruit.
Enjoy this short video of the two outreaches.
