El Dia del Nino/Day of the Child

Yesterday was El Dia del Nino here in Honduras. We celebrated with games, pinatas, cake and little gift bags for the neighborhood Bible class and many of the kids Little Hands helps. There were over 100 children and their parents in attendance.

This picture is of one group waiting for their gift bags that contained candy and a small toy as well as bandaids and other useful things. As they left, many of the children came up to me to say a genuine, "Muchas Gracias!" Day of the Child is a big deal here and it was a special time for us to take part in a cultural experience and show these precious little ones a helping of Jesus' love.
