Children's Party (St. John Monastery)

Last December 7, 2013 was one of the best days I have this year. A friend of mine invited me to attend to an event for kids organized by her other friend. These kids are not homeless but some of them were unfortunate enough not to go to school. The party is for them to have fun.

Since it's Christmas season, we decided to prepare gifts. We were told that the activity will be at St. John Monastery. The place was a bit isolated from the city but it's really worth it. Many volunteers came too.  It was so much fun to be with kids. We had a prayer session, story-telling time and games. They then enjoyed a delicious meal prepared for them by the monks and nuns from the monastery: burger, juice, banana, hotdog with mallow, banana and cupcake.

When they finally receive their gifts, they were so happy! Those smiles are just rewarding. God bless these kids. I am so glad to be a part of this.
