USA – Harvest Kids, Aug 8, 2015

These Harvest Kids are working so hard to help the vulnerable children in Africa and we are so proud of them. They crushed aluminum cans and then filled up the bullet they use for collecting their change another 7”. Last time it was full, they had collected over $290. They are currently working on getting 4 triple bunkbeds and mattresses for Pr Jonathan’s house in Mukono, Uganda. Jonathan over-sees the 287 primary students that attend the community school and provides housing for about 70 orphans between the school and his home. He also helps boys that finish primary school raise money to attend secondary boarding school and lets them stay at his home, although none of them have beds. These beds will help keep them healthy when they are at home on the weekends trying to earn money for their school fees. The rest of the time, other orphans can use the beds. The kids also watched a video about the life of Ruth and how the goodness she showed to Naomi and to Boaz deepened her relationship with God and brought blessings into her life. The kids then read the “Legend of the Sand Dollar” and saw the ways in which the gospel is shown through these shells. The 5 holes that represent the piercings in the body of Jesus, the star, the Christmas poinsettia and when broken open, the tiny doves inside representing the peace that we find in our relationship with Jesus Christ. The kids meet the 2nd & 4th Saturday of each month from 10am-1pm at 9467 Pierce Lane in Sedro Woolley.
