Last Friday we went to Kidstop. We were told we were a huge blessing for the staff at kidstop. As we played with the kids the staff were able to decorate for Christmas and get other practical jobs done. We played games, taught the kids songs, performed a skit, and danced. But we think the face painting was the favorite of the day.
For Christmas we handed out 200 Christmas presents to kids in Blanco and helped to serve 130 kids a Christmas meal at Kidstop.
On Tuesday 27 December, we went to an old age home. Where we prayed for over 40 people. One man was sick and his lips were discoloured (a blue tinge) because of his sickness. A few of the students prayed for him and they returned moments later to see that the man was breathing easier and a pink colour had returned to his lips! We also sang songs and helped to shave off two men’s beards.
On Wednesday we went to Blanco’s Women’s meeting. While the women were busy chatting about emotional and physical scars in our lives, the men and a few of our ladies cooked a soup outside over a fire. We were able to pray with all six women who came to the meeting, and they were visibly touched. At the end our men came in and spoke to the ladies. The men apologized to the Blanco ladies on behalf of the men who had hurt and/or abandoned them in the past. The woman were grateful for the apology. Once the soup was done we went around and passed it out to about 10-12 people who are either elderly and could not cook for themselves, or others who were too ill to cook.
