Children’s Day in Cacador
Recently, the Mount Horeb team and their partners went to the community of Cacador. It was a very special day and various activities were planned, among them: haircuts for all the children, manicures and pedicures for the older girls, a session of storytelling, games, special music, a lesson on balloon shaping, oil and water painting, and art crafts.
There was even a dentist on hand to treat children that needed dental work done. Last of all they showed a film and candies and fruit was distributed to everyone.
The main objective for this event was to show the children that everyone has something to offer that can make someone’s life better. In a society where ideology and selfishness has become a way of life, it is possible to be realistic and open up one’s self to receive and use God’s indisputable and sovereign gift of love expresses itself not only in words but also by our deeds. Everything else in life is secondary.
There are no words to describe the happiness and joy we saw in the smiles of the children and their mothers as we blessed them. The essence of our message to them was that they are worthy of our respect, and highly valued in the eyes of God. A message they don’t often hear.
