How do you build relationships with 63 kids who need love and care and joy?
You spend time with them.
You invest in their lives.
You paint their nails.
You love them.
It is as simple as that.
You show love.
Love is shown to the residents of the children's home in Kathmandu in a variety of ways, most of which are interactive. The children recently had some time off school and that time was filled with fun activities!
For the boys, an afternoon of making leather cuffs, most of which proclaimed their love for Jesus!
The boys loved crafting their treasures, and took extra time to be sure they were perfect.
The younger girls spent a day making cards with art supplies. The cards turned out beautifully! Once the cards were finished the girls discovered another use for the art supplies - face paint!!
The older girls had the opportunity to leave campus and spend an afternoon enjoying snacks, laughter and nail polish. The day was full of the blessing of friendship.
Cuffs and cards, face paint and painted fingernails.
It seems so simple.
But these are relationships in progress and love in action.
