I hope that you are saturated and overflowing with Father’s love today. I am actively blessing Him for YOU this morning. Thank you for allowing me the deep privilege of extending your compassion to marginalised children in Mexico. May our offering of God’s healing there be received as freely as you have so lovingly given. Bless you for caring and sharing!
In Mexico, most kids anxiously await a certain day during the Christmas season. It is not Christmas Eve or Christmas Day… They are most excited to wake up on January 6TH, Three Kings Day. This 12TH day of Christmas is significant to kids because the Magi come bearing gifts… Traditionally, a child would leave a pair of shoes outside their doorway filled with hay to feed the animals which accompany the Wise Men. In exchange, the Three Kings leave gifts. What a thrill that in this Christmas season the “doorway” for 12 precious children is Camp Laughing Child. We cannot wait to talk about why those Wise Men would travel so far to reach Jesus, but most importantly, why Jesus would travel so far to reach them!
The wise still seek and find Him in the faces of His broken children. Jesus insists, what we do to the least of them, we do to Him. May Our Three Kings Christmas Camp be a time of healing discovery. May the gift of Father’s only Son be fully received. “Kings” may fill your shoes, But only Jesus can fill your heart!
As you pray and share, please keep in mind our need for commercial playground equipment, puppets, children’s bibles and books (Spanish language, 6-12 year olds), coloring books… etc. I will be driving a trailer to Mexico, hopefully filled with these needed items, from Columbus, Georgia on November 23RD. Help us fill the truck!
