“Day of the Child” Celebrated at Kids Club

Mexico recognizes “the Day of the Child” in addition to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. It is a special time to honor children and it was celebrated with a fiesta at the weekly Marcos 10:14 Kids Club on May 4th. Over 50 kids, 20 adults and many volunteers were on hand at the club meeting area beside the Iglesia Getsemani church for the event. It was a fun time of prayer, songs, games, a Bible lesson, a puzzle to decode, a piñata to break, a small gift, plus a meal with cake and a drink.

True Path Ministry and faithful volunteers from the Iglesia Getsemani church in Galeana, NL, Mexico team up to welcome all children from the area who choose to attend each week. Many of the kids come for every meeting to learn more about following Christ in their daily lives. They recite Bibles verses, sing Christian songs and form strong bonds with each other and the leaders. Teacher Ana uses a lesson plan that includes important stories about the faith and integrates related crafts and activities.

Each of the meetings are designed to give the children a time to unite in their faith in God. “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God, Mark 10:14 (ESV).
