Yesterday we had a LOVELY afternoon at CDA II with our Danish visitors. Every year this Bible school in Denmark sends out three teams (to Africa, Australia, South America) to share the gospel with youth by way of skits, songs, and dance. Casa de Amor has been privileged to receive them two years in a row now.
I think ours is probably the "youngest" group they ever share with (several team members: "they are all, so.....little!!" Um, yes, I've noticed.)
But you know what? Even the 6 and 8 month old babies had their eyes glued to them for most or all of the program! We were so impressed. Also that they put on red noses or dressed up as clowns for some of the skits (Elizabeth: I was completely unaware of this plan previously!!) and out of 40+ children, no one had a meltdown!! We were stunned! Hip, hip, hooray for the progress made in that area!
There were about 27 visitors and 39 babies/children, so everyone got ample attention
L. couldn't quite enter the festivities as usual, due to his broken arm...
All gathered and ready to watch
This was a neat skit that the older kids could really understand and learn from ("meta" is Spanish for goal)
It was hard to get a good picture of the kids and team together, since I had 1-3 babies in my lap/arms the whole time. =)
The 19 students dancing and singing
The team leaders - one Danish, one Bolivian - presenting team pictures to each of our homes (Boy Twin E is helping)
Like I said recently, it's so nice when people take such an interest in our children, to bless them in many different ways...and consequently, bless the hard working staff/volunteers and give them (okay, us) a moment to step back and just enjoy the kids through the eyes of others!
