Christmas at ATS
The children from the A Thousand Smiles (ATS) orphanage had a very Merry Christmas. From December the 21st until the 24th........
78 youth members from the school were involved in a Youth Camp entitled ‘Run with Passion.’ The three days were packed with sports and Bible games, with motivating talks throughout. Many thanks to Ps Lojun and the youth leaders for making the camp possible.
On Christmas day, the children all attended a classroom party at their local school. Fun games were played by all, and many gifts were given and received. The following day, more celebrations awaited! The children at the Siargao campus met up with those from the San Rafael campus at the beach for some more fun and games. Included in the selection were: sack races, longest line, message relay and general partying! Lunch was ‘sinugbang isda’ (a type of grilled fish). None of the children wanted to leave, even though the clock had wound it’s way to 4pm.
Those at San Rafael came home to some new bunk beds that the carpenter had been working on during the day!
