Christmas in May?

Christmas in May?

Last week we had the privilege of being able to2 give out 22 Samaritan’s Purse Christmas boxes to some of the poorer children in our village. A church in Bangkok had set aside the boxes for us since December, but we only received them in April and had to wait for the school term to begin in May before we could distribute them.

It was worth the wait! The children, especially the younger ones, were overjoyed to receive the lovely gifts and eagerly pulled out all the contents. It was such a happy occasion and, in typical Thai style, many photos were taken to mark the occasion.

In addition to the boxes, each child received a picture booklet telling the story of Jesus. These were all so well received and treasured by the children.  So a big THANK YOU to Samaritan’s Purse and to all the lovely people who filled the boxes and a Merry Christmas to all!
