Last Saturday a life group from Westville Baptist Church organised the Lovebox Celebration in Lamontville. The same group that organised the Winter Warmth Drive for 40 Days of Community, this life group was amped to serve again in Lamontville.
The kids in Lamont were absolutely spoiled! First, the life group had stations with the following activities: face painting, biscuit decorating, colouring, fishing, musical chairs, soccer, egg and spoon race, and a potato sack race.
Then after fun and games, the kids joined to sing some songs and hear the Christmas story from Simphiwe Mbeje, CAST’s Community Coordinator in Lamontville. The life group served lunch and cakes to celebrate as well.
For the grand finale, Father Christmas came to visit all the children and hand out presents! Each child was blessed with a lovebox, specially packed just for them.
Thank you to everyone at Westville Baptist Church who helped a child feel the love of Christ this Christmas season through a lovebox!
