Christmas in the village

For several summers, Camp LELA has been given an area in the forest for nearly free. We asked the local administration that oversees this forest how we could give back to them this holiday season to bless them for their partnership in our ministry to orphans. The administration was happy to open the doors for us to serve their children in a few villages just outside of Odessa. We wanted to share Christ's love with them and share His joy with them this season. Praise God for this opportunity to serve children in this region and that God allows for strong relationships and partnerships with officials. Our clown friends traveled with us to Sverdlov and Komenternovo to give the children gifts and a fun holiday program.
