Christmas Outreach to Orphanage, December 22, 2012

Two YWAM Japan National Office team members went to Iwaki City, Fuskushima Prefecture, on December 22 to deliver Christmas gifts to 31 children at an orphanage. Each child received a Christmas stocking filled with a hand-sewn, stuffed animal reindeer, origami paper set, crayons/colored pencils, drawing pad/sketchbook, and a bag of mixed candies and cookies. We played a game of Bingo with the children, and then served homemade gingerbread cake, snacks, and orange soda/grape soda/ginger ale. While they enjoyed the snacks and drinks, each child was called by name and presented with the filled Christmas stocking.
