A Birthday Party That Brought Celebration Around the World
Two hundred Children of the Kingdom students and one hundred parents attended a Christmas banquet in Kenya last month. Students and parents shared fellowship and a meal together. The Children of the Kingdom staff used this time to encourage families to be in prayer for the ministry and to live out the mission to “share the gospel and our very lives” (1 Thessalonians 2:8).
Children of the Kingdom in India celebrated Christmas and New Years together on January 1st and also had a meal for the children and gifts for them as well.
The banquet was funded from friends and family of Anna Huff who gave funds for children to have a Christmas party in lieu of bringing birthday gifts when she celebrated her 8th birthday in November in Knoxville and in Nashville, Tennessee. $670 was raised for parties in India and in Kenya!
“Gratitude flows from the recognition that who we are and what we have are gifts to be received and shared.” (Henri J.M. Nouwen)
