Our annual Christmas Posada was humbling and full of wonder!
The word posada means “inn” or “shelter” in Spanish and in this tradition, the Bible story of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem and their search for a place to stay is re-enacted or celebrated. There are different ways to have the festivity of the posada, but we believe at Chicktime Galveston that the children and families we serve find “shelter” in our workshops and feel the love of Christ by coming to our “inn” every month.
It’s always with great love and excitement that we have our annual Posada, but it’s pure joy to provide “shelter” every month!
This month was full of new beginnings….
Our charity partner moved locations and this brought about a different way we were going to serve!
New place, new kids, new dynamics, new challenges….
With all the unknown, we decided to softly have Chicktime November and not really announce our workshop to access things and get a better feel of our new~ Chicktime!
We should of known that when we place it in God’s hands it’s taken care of~ Faith over Fear!!
These pictures don’t show the love and grace that was present in our workshop…
These pictures don’t show the hurt and broken girls laughing and talking and having hope in their heart…
But believe us….It was all there!! God was in the house!
New place, new kids, new dynamics, new challenges….Yes!!
But we have an awesome opportunity to be HIS hands and feet and through HIM offer new life!!
These wonderful volunteers showed up to help us make jewelry and do a little free art!
And maybe eat a few desserts…..
It’s amazing how every month the workshops just keep getting better and better! Not because of the activity, but because of the love and joy that is in the room when Chicktime Galveston is going on!!
Check us out next month!
We love to be His hands and feet!
Thank you all of our “Chicktime Angels” that donated school supplies, toiletries, clothing for the new baby girls, and other clothing that was set up “garage style” for the families to go through and get for free.
We served a total of 15 families!!!!
Thank you to everyone who helped to make Chicktime July so special for the children and families of the Family Crisis Center! It was hot outside but we sure did have fun!!
We had a bouncy house for the children to run wild in & we even had face painting for them to enjoy!
We hope to see YOU at Chicktime August where we will be hosting a Back 2 School Supply Drive for the children.
It is done father, thank you for allowing us to be your hands and feet.
We were blessed today to be with the awesome families at the family crisis center.
Our greatest gratitude to Galveston ILA, College of the Mainland PEERS and all the wonderful volunteers who donated their time and toys for the Family crisis center, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!
We hope YOU will join us for Chicktime January!
