USA – “Harvest Kids”, August 12, 2017
God brought together a mighty group of kids on Saturday. We would like to take the time to thank the many people whom pray and support all His children. With all of the summer activities that are surrounding us we still are blessed with many. We also would like to thank the people in the area that continually drop off cans here at the Harvest House and our other collection sights. After crushing cansthe kids were sure they would fill the bullet for the 11th time. Change was plentiful thanks to the efforts of all of the men on Wednesday mornings that gather for breakfast. With all of the combined efforts the kids were excited to learn they are only 4 inches shy of their goal. Ted shared with the kids why & how they make a difference crushing cans and collecting coins for the vulnerable children in Africa. He shared some photos of children of Fountain of Hope School in Nebbi, Uganda, sitting on a woven mat in school. It was their classroom being held under the only shade in the area. After this they all came together and put together pencil pouches that held basic school supplies for these children that will be taken to them personally on Teds soon approaching trip to Africa. They created personal inspirational messages placing a card in each pouch signed by them here. Statements like” God loves you”, “You are unique just the way you are” and “Do good in school”. They made a beautiful poster with similar sayings with hand prints in paint for the kids there to enjoy.
