We would like to send a big thank you to Kimberly S. of Marriottsville, MD and her LCMS Lutheran church for the gifts to the children in Guatemala. The Vacation Bible School kids at Kimberly’s church assembled 70 craft kits for the kids in Guatemala! The kit was a Gospel Colors bracelet and a cross bookmark for the children to assemble. One lady in the church made all 70 cloth bags for the craft kits which were then decorated by the VBS children.
The children loved putting them together and we really appreciate the Vacation Bible School students from the U.S.A. making and sending the Christian Education children in Guatemala this expression of Jesus’ love– across the borders!
Some of the craft kits were given to the children of one of our artisan groups. These children too loved receiving the gift and the older children sat down and began showing the younger ones how to put the items together.
Most of the children who received these craft kits rarely receive a toy or gift so it was very special for the children. The craft kits had messages in English and Spanish to tell about the meaning of the Gospel bracelet and the VBS children even included a handwritten message in Spanish in each kit.
Thanks again to Kimberly S. and her Lutheran Church for sharing with the children of Guatemala!
