FHF has recently began a relationship with a low-income school in our local community. Last November was our first outreach and service day with them. You may remember, we spent one morning running an English camp with over 100 students, including a short introduction to who God is. The next day all of our orphan families returned to serve the school by cleaning the grounds and classrooms. Well, we’re at it again! We gathered all our families last Saturday for another cleaning day at the school.
It’s a rewarding and fun experience all around. Jesus said that it is better to give than to receive. And we want to help our kids experience that as well. The kids in our foundation get a unique opportunity to serve and give to others—a new experience for many orphans who have so little to call their own. It is revealing and empowering for them—they too have something wonderful to share: themselves!
This experience is also a great chance to build unity among our families—the ongoing process of making our foundation a Family. It’s a fun time of fellowship and serving together in love (as well as a rousing game of soccer!).
We are excited about the opportunity to build on these new relationships at the school in the future and see how God might have us be salt and light to them. This Buddhist Thai school continues to welcome us with open arms. Please pray we can continue to love and serve them well in Jesus’ name.
“…serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13
