Imparting Smiles Christmas: Kracheh

December 29, 2011

Merry Christmas from Kracheh!  After nearly ten years in caring for kids in Kracheh, we had a burst of excitement in December.  Electricity!  Now, we have to teach them the basics of electricity, like turning off the lights at night. . . some of the kids want to keep the lights on 24 hours per day! Anyway, it is fun times in Kracheh!

The children at the Christmas party in Kracheh

Like in Poipet, we give many special and practical things to the children; toothpaste, flip-flops, an “angry birds” t-shirt and even underwear.  But in addition to this, Mike and Tammy Walker from the Heights Church in Prescott, AZ saved up a bunch of presents like many do the “Christmas boxes” so that they could give the gifts to kids that they knew.  Each child got their own special bag full of neat toys like “hot wheels” for the boys, bows for the girl’s hair, playdoh, yummy American candy and other fun stuff!  It was an exciting time for the kids, who look forward to Christmas!

Happy for a "Hot Wheels"

Once again I have added a short video of the kids opening their presents. If you want to see and hear how happy the kids are to get such simple gifts, have a look:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
