Several Activities (F) - Sunday School Rally

On December 6th the children of our parish were gathered at a Sunday School Rally. The venue was the UHLCathedral and the Traffic Children's Park behind the Cathedral. 80 children and 14 Sunday School Teachers from UHLC, Kawangware and Kibera were together from 10am to 3:30pm. The theme of the Rally was: I AM GOD'S ANGEL (MESSENGER) TO PROCLAIM CHRIST TO THE WORLD. It was an ABLAZE RALLY!!! The "Conquerors" performed a nice Christmas drama about the message of the angel to the shepherd; and some teacher told the stories how the angel announced Christ to Zachariah, to Mary, to Joseph and to the shepherd. So, we can proclaim Christ to the others too!!!

Several children led the other children in songs and poems.

Some Kawangware's children performed the Christmas Story while a teacher was reading the Gospel.

At 2pm was a break for lunch, prepared by two mammas: pilau (rice with meat), some salad and a soda.

Lunch time: a happy time! - After lunch the children had activities inside the church.

The children, with the help of the teachers, made little angels with the inscription: "I AM AN ANGEL/MESSENGER OF THE LORD TO SHARE THE GOOD NEWS". They sang and prayed before they went home, and received little gifts and sweets.

At the end of the day Deaconess Mary, in charge of the Sunday School, and the Sunday School Teachers of the parish were happy and thankful to God for this blessed day! "TRAIN A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO, AND WHEN HE IS OLD HE WILL NOT TURN FROM IT" (Proverbs 22:6).
