Another success story by the grace of God!!! We are amazed and mesmerized by the blessings that we have witnessed last Saturday, September 19th 2015. God once again gave us a chance to serve orphan and vulnerable kids on the New Year carnival that we have organized at “Selam Children’s Village.” We were able to serve around 800 kids from 17 different centers from Addis, Debre Zeit and Sululta. Our program began early in the morning at 8:30 AM when kids were welcomed and ushered to their breakfast treat. They were served donuts from the best donut in town (DK donuts) and juice. In the meantime kids of age 4 to 12 were presenting their faces as canvases for the artist volunteers who were doing face painting. After breakfast we had a praise and worship time with Zema for Christ, Beza Youth Choir, Ephrem Alemu and Selam kids. The word of God was shared by our very own volunteer Wost. Also kids from five different centers presented beautiful songs, choreography and poems as did the volunteers.

Following the morning program lunch with soft drinks (partly sponsored by Coca Cola) were served with two options Cheese Burgers from Angla or “Injera beWot”. After Lunch the kids enjoyed different indoor and outdoor games. We also had a football tournament between KVI and AHope Little and the winning center, KVI, was given trophy. Although we all have enjoyed every single activity, the day has to end and we had to say goodbye… BUT WAIT!! One more thing, Gift time! This year we gave each kid a backpack as they begin a new school year and a pair of shoe for those kids that already had a new backpack and the icing was Ice cream from Embwa Creamery.

Praise God for everything. We are also very thankful for everyone who were involved or supported us in prayers and donations from both inside and outside of Ethiopia. We are grateful to have this great opportunity to serve His little ones.
