A couple of weeks ago ILE hosted a Christmas Party for the children from Robleatlto. Roblealto is an awesome Christian organization here in Costa Rica that was started by missionaries around 70 years ago. Some of the children are orphans, but some have been taken from their families by the government. And others send their children there and pay what they can because they are not able to care for their children. It is located in Costa Rica near a very, very poor area. The living conditions are really hard there. But Roblealto offers them hope and light and help. They teach them from the Bible and use the Bible as a guideline for living. The children often take what is taught to them back to their families. Thousands of people have been transformed by Christ with the work of this ministry. Praise the Lord.
Well ILE does a Christmas party for children every year. It is sponsored by us students. Part of our student fees help support this party. We make the games and buy the presents and have the priveledge of enjoying the kids for the time when they are on our campus. Well, I got the priveledge of helping out this year. It was such a sweet blessing to me. The children ranged from babies to 15 or 16 years old. They were so sweet and I think that playing with them probably meant more to me than it did to them!! I had a blast, they seemed to too. Here are some pictures….
