It is that time again...
Children's Day in China!!!!!!!!
I have just loved seeing these photos of our special girls and sharing in their Celebrations across the Miles. Matthew stayed up late to make sure we had the photos as soon as possible to share in the joy :-)
All the girls around Nanning were invited by QQ to came and join in the fun...and it is great to see here two of our girls from Yizhou, one now studying in Nanning!
This I LOVE!!!!!!!The Banner from last year2010, being updated to this year 2011, by just sticking on some new numbers:-)
And here is this year's team, celebrating together the Hope they have for the future.
Off to the River to share dinner and talk, carrying the Sky Lanterns for later.....
and enjoying dinner
Delighted that this girl has earned her own money by helping to illustrate the Ten Blazing Suns Book ,
and the Wang Wang cards.
She and several other girls have been commissioned by us to write modern Chinese stories for bi-lingual books with illustrations ...in this way they can earn their own money and help others at the same time.I am so looking forward to seeing their work!
Some of the girls already have their new glasses, thanks to generous donations from sponsors
Thanks to the generosity, love and support of sponsors around the world,
these girls lives have been transformed...
and they will go on to transform the lives of many more.............
A Message to the girls from their Friends and Sponsors.....as they lit their Lanterns
Happy Children's Day to ALL children,
but especially to those who struggle everywhere.........
...and to those who help to make a difference!
