Ecclesiastes 3:1 says: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:”
Birthdays give us an opportunity to celebrate each individual child. At the end of each month we take time at Faith Children’s Village to celebrate those children who have had a birthday during that month.
During the day’s activities we set aside time to have devotion or a special biblical message, worship in song, play organized games and finish with singing to the birthday children. Last but not least, we all eat cake!!
We strive to take every opportunity to disciple the children of FCV. We endeavor to demonstrate Christ’s love and care for our children in many ways and the birthday celebration is one way we do that.
This month we played “find the pom-pom”
and relay games, and the children had to work in teams to construct a giraffe out of pipe cleaners.
After the games, Brian Cameon shared a devotion from Matthew 25:14-30 on the Parable of the Talents. It was a time of great encouragement for the children to utilize the gifts they have been uniquely given by God.
We recognize the privilege we have in caring for these precious children and we do not take for granted the opportunities we have to encourage and minister to them. We are grateful for each person who makes this ministry possible.
