Spending time with kids at the orphanage

Singing "Baby Shark"- this was their favorite song! :)

Thursday nights we had two hours to spend with the kids at a local orphanage. We had a great time singing songs, playing games and doing creative projects. The kids were so sweet! Many of them have learning disabilities or other kinds of disabilities. It was so good to love them, encourage them and spend time with them in a fun and creative way.

Making friendship bracelets!

Musical chairs is always a big hit!
"All that is not the love of God has no meaning for me. I can truthfully say that I have no interest in anything but the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. If God wants it to, my life will be useful through my word and witness. If He wants it to, my life will bear fruit through my prayers and sacrifices. But the usefulness of my life is His concern, not mine. It would be indecent of me to worry about that."
