Just when you thought…

Our kids are taught a new virtue each month in their Orchard Kids Wahabu class. This month the virtue is generosity. In combination with the grown up church, the kids are also learning about the clean water crises around the world. They talked in small group about what they could do to help whether it was give something from their piggy bank or maybe give up a Christmas gift and ask mom & dad to donate that money toward the clean water project.

So Doug gets a note from Maddie saying she would like to give up the Panda she was asking for and would we donate that money to the water project?

Of course we couldn’t have afforded the $60 Panda anyway but we will happily donate a portion of her Christmas gift budget.

    That’s what makes it all worth while! Seeing what good people our kids are, and not because Mom and Dad had to talk them into doing the right thing. She’s going to be an amazing adult!!!


  4. That is why I LOVE The Orchard! They present so many oppurtunities for our children to grow in God’s love!!!!
