MEETING CHILDRENS’ NEED
Jesus said “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” Matt 19:14
Early in December 2021, INSAAF hosted a Kids Party for 50 children of Migrant Domestic Workers. In these challenging economic times, mothers are not able to afford simple joys like toys and children’s Happy Meals at McDonald’s. We collaborated with a local NGO to provide free entertainment and a local migrant church to provide a large outdoor meeting space. McDonald’s brought Happy Meals and extra activity packs for kids, including balloons and coloring books. The children enjoyed the clowns, costume contest, prizes, and toys. They also received face painting and made Christmas-themed crafts. The parents enjoyed seeing the big smiles plastered on their children’s faces and hearing the endless bouts of laughter.
Christmas Gifts for Children of Migrant Domestic Workers
We at Insaaf and the children of the MDWs are deeply grateful for the Christmas gifts that they received from Third Baptist Church in St Louis, Missouri. During these very challenging economic times in Lebanon, the funds from TBC came as a blessing. Each child received a $45 dollar gift coupon which they could go and redeem at a store that sold kids clothes and shoes. 150 children celebrated a joyous 2022 Christmas and New Year. The excitement of the children cannot be described in words.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR US
This month, two of our staff were infected with COVID from one of our beneficiaries. We continue to pray for their healing and infected family members. Please continue to pray for our protection and safety. We also need wisdom with continuing our ministries during COVID. Our beneficiaries are some of the most vulnerable. They do not have money for PCR tests and medicine is hard to find and very expensive.
We rejoice in the many varied ways God is using us to be His hands and feet to “the least of these” in Beirut at this time. Thank you for partnering with us in prayer and for your generous giving!
