 Today I"m sharing with you the classes where we do crafts every Sunday.  This group of little boys are always wild and fun.  Of course, one is too cool to do crafts, therefore, one or two more also sometimes don't, but they really do like them.  It was a particularly cold day when I did these pictures so all classes were pretty small that day.
 This class usually has six, including some girls and they are always excited for crafting.  As you can see by the shot, these were taken just a couple weeks ago. Christmas in Ukraine is celebrated well into January with the old calendar.
 These babies are my favorites.  They don't do much more than glue and scribble, but they love it.
 Surprisingly, the teens like doing crafts too, but we don't do them as often.  These photos are going into cards that they will decorate next week.  I was blessed by another missionary who gave me lots of photo paper so I could do things like this.
This last class usually has about 6 to 8 kids. Notice the computer.  Technology is coming to the classroom.  Every Sunday they have tea and cookies.  I think that is such nice touch for Sunday school.  My deepest thanks to all of those who send craft materials so I can do this ministry.  Without your help I couldn't do much since there are no craft stores here.  Blessings to all of you in 2013.

I think it's wonderful that you do that for those children. I know how much my 3 and 5 year old love doing crafts. I'm sure those children will never forget.

Thanks, Jessica. I hope I can ignite a creative spark they carry with them.
