Christmas and shoe bags, Sierra Leone
News from Sierra Leone reports that the children from Bethesda Orphanage and The Connexion schools and churches had a very enjoyable Christmas and were delighted with their shoe bag gifts.
Pictured above are children inside St Marks Church in Waterloo - waiting for their shoe bags...
... before going outside to receive them!
And below are the children from Ebenezer Manallo, looking equally pleased to receive their bags.

On behalf of the children in Sierra Leone, please may we pass on very many thanks to the amazing Connexion community and volunteers who make it possible for them to receive these treats on Christmas Day.
