Christmas Bakers

Our school children baked biscuits and painted tins as gifts for their teachers to express their gratitude for their love and care during this crazy academic year and to wish them a blessed Christmas. Thanks to Niky, Paul and Leeann for this great idea and the time and love you invested in the day. The kids simply loved the outing, baking and swimming- Thank you!

Babies, Babies, Babies!

With 5 babies under a year we held a campaign to gather support to meet their needs. We had an overwhelmingly positive response with bottles, nappies, toiletries, clothing and formula. Thank you to each and every family for blessing our babies and older kiddies. We are ever grateful! Nappies and Infacare 1, 2 and 3 are consumables that we simply cannot do without. If you’d like to support us please feel free to drop off your donations or call Loressa to arrange other ways of contributing.

Early Childhood Development

Glrory leads our onsite preshool/ kindergarten program for the 3 to 5 year olds. They start each day with instilling the love for books and reading followed by playdough for fine motor skills, creativity and strengthening hand muscles. Some love the texture of the dough while others need to get used to it still. Even the tiny tots and toddlers join in this fun start. After tidy up time the pre-schoolers head off to the Solid Ground Youth Centre for “school”. The day is filled with many activities including colours, shapes, counting, singing, daniding, outdoor activities and jungle gym time. Granny Nellie has fast become loved and enjoyed by this little group as she brings along a craft each day- cutting, sticking, drawing, painting, you name it Nellie does it! Here is some evidence of theit crafting...

Rest, Rejuivinate, Celebrate

To celebrate another year of serving together and to rest and recharge our batteries we went away for a 2 night break as a team. What an amazing opportunity to build friendships and to relax, socialize and to enjoy the beach and sunny weather. We were blessed with sponsored accommodation, gifts and entertainment costs- thank you to each one of you who made this trip a reality and such a blessing for us all. The trip was a once in a lifetime for most of the ladies and they will cherish the memories for years to come. We are most thankful.

Thank you to everyone who contributed gifts and extras towards blessing our kiddies over Christmas. Each child will receive a personal gift that includes at least 1 item off their wishlist. I have been blown away by the generosity and extent of the community’s heart. May you all have a blessed Christmas and feel the love of our Heavenly Father in a tangible way. Stay safe. With Love Loressa, staff and kids
