rhino kid's camp

Our mission team hosted the Rhino Kid’s Camp for 5 days. During the week, our team served over 1,400 children. Going to camp has become the biggest event of the year for the children. Team members from the US, teachers, local volunteers, and our new school mascot, Ronnie the Rhino, created a fun environment with crafts, games, music, Bible lessons, dancing, skits, and even yoga!

gift a gallon

“All children love to play and sing and want to be celebrated. When we give the children their Gift a Gallon bag we let them know there is someone thinking about them and loving them even though they are far away.” 

- Robin Stearns, First Presbyterian Church, CA

We are proud to announce that you packed 1,247 Gift a Gallon bags making this the largest giving yet!
