Our September meetings included a number of things. It was our quarterly birthday party and 40 children were recognized as having had a birthday during the months of July, August and September. Each child received a small toy and if they have an active sponsor, they also received a coupon to use at the clinic store to purchase something small in remembrance of their birthday. Cake and a drink is served to everyone and the children are prayed over.
Abner gave a devotional from Psalms 91 and he also gave a talk on oral dental care. Toothbrushes were distributed to the children. The extra protein benefit that some of our sponsors provide was fish this month.
They continue to do the monthly interviews with the family, before and after the monthly meetings, to update our file data that we keep and share with our sponsors; to let them know what changes may be occurring in their sponsored families.
As always, we want to say a huge “thank you” to our Embrace sponsors for making the difference for these Guatemalan children.
