On Thursday, December 14, our kids met for their faith formation class as usual. But this time, it would be a little different. Each one was given a gift to wrap and to give to someone who is poor. The following short video explains what they had to do, translation: “Go to the someone who is poor and tell them: ‘God loves you, Merry Christmas!'”
Each group was given different gifts to share–t-shirt, candy, soap and toothpaste. Now this is not as easy as it sounds. Each of these little children is poor, and for them it was difficult to GIVE AWAY something they want and, yes, they need. But don’t worry…this Christmas, because of your generosity and donations sent in the container, these children will receive many things they need.
So, after they finished wrapping their different gifts, they were sent…
After they finished preparing their small gifts to give to the poor, they were sent to proclaim: “God loves you! Merry Christmas!” As they followed their teacher, they all were singing: “Go, go, go, people; go with Jesus. Go, go, go, people, together with Jesus!”
