October 12th is Children's Day in Brazil, and it is a big deal here!
It just so happens that this special day falls on a national holiday (a Catholic holiday), therefore kids even have this day off from school. Today lots of kids from various ABBA ministries (the local Brazilian mission we serve with) came together at the ABBA headquarters for a fun Children's Day celebration!
Around fifty kids who participate at Casa Semear were bused to the ABBA headquarters this morning. There they enjoyed a wonderful fun-packed program organized by many volunteers. All of this was done to celebrate the lives of these precious children and to share God's message of love with them. The kids had a blast and could enjoy simply being kids!
Here are a few photos from the Children's Day celebration!
Both Jessie and Sophia LOVED the Children's Day celebration! They were proud of their face paintings too!
HAPPY CHILDREN'S DAY!!!
