UPDATE FROM PEACHTREE ROAD SPONSOR A CHILD PROGRAM
The volunteers from Peachtree Road Sponsor-A-Child program just returned from visiting the Kitski orphanage in Georgia with many wonderful stories. The volunteers spent 4 1/2 days with the children and taught arts and crafts, music, and dance. A lot of time was also spent playing basketball, soccer, and Uno in their donated playground. After days filled with fun, it was time to leave. The older youth prepared an amazing presentation on the country of Georgia using the new projector a PRUMC donor had given Kitski and showcased an elaborate dance for our departure. Also, two vocational programs have been established in the orphanage thanks to donations from Peachtree Road Sponsor-A-Child program. There is a Hair Styling program and our local plumber, Bondo, has been hired to teach the children the trade of plumbing. We hope to establish a bread-making vocational program soon so the children can learn to bake their own daily bread as bread is one of the more expensive foods delivered to Kitski each day. Finally, the Peachtree Road Sponsor-A-Child program has been moved to February, so please consider re-sponsoring your “adopted” child at that time. Sponsor a child please contact; Lynn Banks at lynnsbanks@charter.net;
