Christmas Party at Casa Semear!

Each year we hold a Christmas party at Casa Semear, and it is a highlight of the year for the kids who live in the neighborhood slum community and participate in the ministry programs.

First we gather and have a time of sharing from the Word of God.  This year Felipe shared briefly about how Christmas is the celebration of God sending His Son Jesus Christ with the ultimate purpose of dying on the cross for the sins of the world and rising again! 

We enjoy a special lunch, a typical Brazilian barbecue, and then distribute Christmas gifts, which were donated by generous donors from near and far. Thank you if you are one of those sponsors who helped to make this day possible!

Enjoy seeing these photos of Casa Semear's 2018 Christmas party!














Here are just a few of the smiling faces at the party!  Each child recieved a pair of shoes, a new clothiug item or outfit, and a fun present of some kind.   Each family also received a Christmas food package filled with nonperishable items.  The children and families were cared for and shown the love of Christ through these practical needs being met this Christmas!



























Again, thank you to all of you who have prayed for or supported Casa Semear in some way!  May these lives grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, living lives of dignity and joy in Him.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
