Maboloka Christmas Party

What another great year and how fitting to end the year on a high! Our annual Christmas party was once again a successful event.
I am stunned at how the numbers keep growing each year and how each year God blesses us with donations both from corporate and individual households.
Our journey started from Corpus Christi with vehicles loaded with presents, eatables, pottery goodies and lots of elves to assist us with our event of the year!!
What a delight to arrive to the sound of children singing, clapping and dancing to welcome us to their humble abode.
The elves immediately got to work preparing the lovely eats for the kids and caregivers at the Haven….what a spread…
While the kiddies were enjoying the lovely snacks and lunch, our resident Father Christmas Graham Harrington was dressed in his attire to delight the kids and hand over their presents! Oh what joy on the faces when he appeared…followed by more songs of praise and a few tears from children who were afraid of Father Christmas.
Huge and special thanks to the following sponsors for making this Christmas party possible and special:
Woolworths Faerie Glen&Centurion; Susan Ball; Swazi (Pharmacy Direct);Bright Beginnings Pre-School; Staff of CTP Packaging:Parishioners of Corpus Christi
As we open our hearts and pockets for the Christmas party each year, we should be mindful to do so throughout the year, the Haven is in serious need of necessities for their kitchen and well as for the school. The food parcels feed approximately 80 percent of the children’s families at the school, it’s important that we make this part of our monthly giving. As God blesses us we should be a blessing to others.
As we departed our hearts were filled with joy and gratitude to be able to share the most humbling experience with the special children and caregivers of Maboloka Haven.
My prayer is that the Lord will continue to bless the work that our team is doing, which is deeply humbling!
Matthew 19:14
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
