We love Christmas!

Christmas 2015 has come and gone and Rainbowz, the childrens' group that meets on the plot of Flying Mission Zambia each Sunday afternoon, has celebrated it once again with enthusiasm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Christmas Story was told this year by Sally Green, back to renew connections with the children of this needy area of suburban Lusaka. 

 

The pictures tell their own story as the childen hear again the story of Jesus's birth - this time with actions!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the story, the gifts. Most children would not have received any other gift than what they took home that day. Some smaller ones looked a little bewildered but they soon got the idea!

Our invaluable local helpers receive something too.

 

 

 

 

 

Mission families always help with distribution of these small presents. It is our privilege to do this for the children.

 

We have  a great team of workers who turn up to teach each week. Sometimes there are over 100 children to organise.  Some days it is a wonderful time and others is a bit more of a challenge.  ...

but we keep smiling through! These children are so worth it.
