This year we are doing something different than we have done the last 11 Christmas season.
In the past, we had gotten a small toy along with things that the children needed. I remember when I was growing up how after my father got hurt that our gifts would be something like a pair of work pants and socks. Admittedly I needed them, but it wasn’t overly exciting.
This year, I talked to Inday and we decided to get each of the children something exciting that they could enjoy. She had a budget of $15.00 for each child. Each of the families will get 5 kilos of rice and some Goldilocks treats. They are going to have a meal for all of them and then have their gifts passed out.
I would love to see their faces as they get their presents, but they have promised to take a lot of pictures. They will probably have to go to Sindangan to the internet café to send the pictures because the signal is too weak in the village.
I have included some pictures of previous years. Warning, don’t get confused at the date on the pictures, they never properly set the camera date.
I want to thank all our supporters for your continuing support this past year. I would love to share my pictures and tell you in person about our children and what is happening in their lives and that of the families.
