The first meeting of the new year of Helping Hands children’s club took place this afternoon. We started with a quick review of the events surrounding Jesus’ birth so that the children would be able to tell the story themselves when we presented the card that they made two weeks ago for Babushka Lena. This dear woman loves when the children visit…she has had back problems for the last several years and she can no longer join us at church to worship each week. They children bring a shining light into her flat and she thoroughly enjoys them.
After telling the Christmas story the children serenaded her with ‘Silent Night.’ Three verses. Only the adults needed to read the words!
Thankful that Pastor Ivan arranged for our little group to meet her last fall — this is an ongoing relationship that encourages everyone involved.
Can’t wait to hear what the children want to do next.
