The children did not mind the heat and were so full of joy. They sang songs for us and welcomed us with their beautiful smiles. We distributed these lovely dolls and the players to them. It was wonderful to see many hugging and kissing their soft dolls. They were excited and we hope that the players they listen to will not only be helpful for their own spiritual nourishment but for everyone in their homes. It is our prayer that each child will know the Lord Jesus Christ in a personal manner.
"How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed?

And how are they to hear without someone preaching?"
- Romans 10:14
