(our latest steps): Born Again

Towards the end of tour, the team always makes sure
that we have celebrated every child’s birthday…
even if their birthday month was not during tour.

Everyone gets their own party and cake!
We also pray over each child and share encouragement.
Birthdays are so special, and it’s a wonderful opportunity
to celebrate the ones we love.
And as believers, not only do we get one birthday –
we get TWO, because we are born again!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again
to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
1 Peter 1:3

the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”
