Christmas celebrations 2021
Christmas is a great and busy season for us in Restore.
Our youth and children are all very excited for Christmas carols, sermale (traditional Romanian food) and presents.
This year we have been able to bless many villages with a family box for every family in the Roma communities. It is always a precious moment when people who are not used to get a lot of gifts for Christmas receive a big box with food, sweets, clothes, toys and school equipment. In Saros we were also able to give all the kids winter boots. We know that these things are so appreciated, and we want to thank everyone who has been part of sorting, buying and loading stuff for this project.
In the month of December our After School programs and Youth groups have been focusing on the Christmas message. It is a privilege to tell our young people that God so loved them that he sent his son into the world to save. We pray that they will experience that Christmas is not just a nice season at the end of the year, but a time to remember and relate to the God who sent his son.
We have done a lot of fun Christmas activities with them. The children have all had days of crafts where they made Christmas decoration that they could take home and decorate their house with. The Seleus and Saros youth had a Christmas party with a nice meal and fun and in Copsa the youth celebrated New Years Eve together.
Christmas is also a time where our team gets to celebrate together. We celebrate the Christmas message, but also what we have achieved and what God has done during the last year. More than all we are thankful to him for his faithfulness.
We want to say thank you to everyone who supports Restore in many different ways, and wish you Gods blessing and all the best for 2022.
