Need Christmas Sweets Options? Read Up.

rsz_1mbp_pinkChristmas is about celebrating the real reason for the season, it is taking the time to thank God for Jesus, the ultimate message of Christmas. Also, it is about celebrating family, friendships and building memories that last. But most moms make the easy mistake of spending all time worrying about the minute details of parties, instead of involving family with preparation for our Christmas celebrations. For this working mom, Christmas is made easier with sweets-on-the-go type of gifts. I remember preparing teachers’ gifts with kids, it was a simple bag of chocolate cupcakes but made special with handwritten cards from my kids.

An Elementary School in Bulacan only has Five Classrooms

 

rsz_1mbp_pinkAs part of our Christmas traditions, we visited last year an elementary school for a Christmas gift-giving day. Banahaw Elementary School is a public school that has students in grades first through sixth in Norzagaray, Bulacan of Central Luzon (Region III). The school has 5 instructional rooms and 1 non-instructional rooms. Sadfully, none of the rooms has a dependable supply of electricity. With 138 students last year, class size is around 28 students. Lorie Floresca is principal of the school.

banahaw4It was more of a prayerful preparation we did, other than sourcing sponsors and connecting with people who would like to help. Our goal when we visited was to share about who God is and His blessings.

banahaw1It was so encouraging to see kids of all ages, parents and teachers have smiles on their faces when we staged a midget dance. It seemed such a simple dance number but to the eyes of the kids, it felt like they were watching the most beautiful kiddie show there is. We thank God for their positive outlook and great faith in a God who can answer their prayers. Kids from this school, when asked, dream of finishing their studies and helping their respective families.

Getting there was not actually easy. This makes it difficult for any other group to up the Norzagaray mountains and visit this school for any outreach activity. The way up means taking rough roads, be ready to catch all the dust your pores can handle. We armed ourselves with towelettes on our heads and faces as we went up. The climb up was steep, the jeepney had to slow down on some rough road patches or to wait for its turn on single lane rough roads. It is usual to see students in school without slippers, walking or taking horses to and from school.

We bought a Jesus cake and led everyone into prayer and singing the happy birthday song to Jesus. It was not a surprise to hear some of the kids say that it was their first time ever to have tasted a cake. They were all too happy to receive new pair of slippers, fruits, drinks, hygiene kits and toys.

If you have the heart to help Banawe Elementary school students this year, Team Deborah is prayerfully seeking help to prepare slippers, fruits, drinks, hygiene kits, toys, cakes/cupcakes, teachers’ gifts (pictured above) or any other items you would like to donate in time for December 17 visit. May God continue to be Your Rewarder as you seek ways to share your blessings this season.
