Chicktime San Antonio spent the afternoon at Boysville Children’s Home for their annual Stocking party. It’s our honor to ”sponsor” the two cottages for this Stocking party where the girls live that come to our monthly Chicktime workshops. We get their Christmas wishlists and ask for help to purchase items off the list …. And it never ever fails….
We have very generous and compassionate women who believe in the Chicktime ministry step up to help make it happen! It overwhelms us every year!!
Thanks to these fabulous women- the girls got gift cards to their favorite place to shop , fun gifts , personal gifts and gifts to make their space feel special! We were able to gift the house parents with a gift card too and get household items for each of the cottages…
and after many months of asking we were able to get each of the girls a Chicktime Sweatshirt
Some cried as the opened their gifts. Some were in complete awe and speechless. Some even screamed! Ha! We truly felt the spirit of Christmas during this time. God is so good.
Before this happened, the girls and their houseparents treated us to a wonderful array of Christmas party food like Tamales, queso , veggie,cheese, and fruit trays ! As we gathered with the girls around their table to break bread together one of the girls prayed and we had wonderful conversations about things like school, food and Chicktime. Then one of the girls asked if she could say something to the “Chicktime Ladies”…
She thanked us for not treating them like orphans. For showing up month after month. For seeing them and knowing who they really are and knowing their names . It sparked others to chime in and say similar things… we truly knew right then that our ministry is needed!
These precious girls feel loved by Chicktime .
So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you to all who have come to volunteer. Thank you for all who have lead a monthly workshop and shared your passions or hobbies with the girls. Thank you for buying supplies and snacks . Thank you for contributing to special projects and programs like the Christmas stocking party. Thank you for praying for Chicktime. Thank you for praying for Boysville- for the kids who live there and the staff who work with them.
Thank you for it all!
We have workshops lined up for 2023! We hope to see you one month!
To God Be the Glory-
Annette , Donnette and Letty
