The next model in 2002 was Bluefields Nicaragua
where 1,100 children took part in 6 different compassion efforts.
Almost all these children were very poor and this was the first
time the local children found they didn't need to be recipients
but they "could help their own people." They visited senior
citizen homes, repaired the road system, upgraded a water system,
identified all the fruits in Bluefields and came up with a way to
can and bottle the fruits for export. They worked on agriculture
and fishing projects. As the 10 lesson curriculum was on the life
of Joseph he was the model of hope as he went from the pit to the
palace through belief and faith.
The great need in 2004 is for all your KG, TG, EG
& FG to take photos and video of your compassion projects? Document
your model what happened for others in your country or across the
world to learn from what you do. What an opportunity to learn from
one another as Chennai and Bluefields provided.
In Andhra Pradesh State in India all 20 KG will
include compassion projects. In two USA cities, the Vacaville KG
compassion project is called Get'N'Gear. This will entail collecting
used and new sports equipment for the immigrant migrant workers.
The children of migrant workers will be included in the KG with
the goal of bridging across language and racial lines. In Orlando
4,000 are expected to participate in serving in their local communities.
All 4,000 will contribute "back to school" supplies of
paper and pencils.1,000 of the KG participants who need such supplies
won't know "they themselves" will be the recipients. One
of the partner agencies is contributing the 1000 backpacks to hold
the paper and pencils.
