Christmas is a time Christians all over the world remember the birth of Jesus Christ. Christmas is also a reminder that the current year is close to an end with the arrival of a new year a few days away.
The season comes with celebrations and exchanging of gifts, parties, food, drinks, new dresses, toys, and many other exciting and memorable activities. But most of these gifts are perishable or soon to be forgotten as days go by.
For the children at the Volta Home Orphanage, however, their Christmas gift in 2019, will remain food for the soul. No child will reject a party, especially a Christmas party, so our foundation organized one for the Volta Home kids. There was plenty to eat and drink. They danced, clapped, and laughed-thanks to the Joy in Giving team who stirred up the atmosphere with joy and love.
The ultimate gift, that which will not perish but will contribute to the spiritual growth of the children, was a Bible. Courtesy of the foundation’s partner, Patrick Quainoo Global Ministries, each child received a Good News Bible- a Christmas gift they will own for life. The children must have food for their physical survival but they also need the word of God which is food for the soul as captured in Mathew chapter 4 verse 4-
Jesus answered, ‘It is written: “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’ (Matthew 4:4, NIV).
We are thankful to all our partners, donors, and volunteers who helped us to end the year 2019 in a memorable way.
