Kid´s Day in Guadalajara

Kid´s Day is an important day in Mexico, celebrated on the 30th of April.  The Torre Fuerte C&MA church in Guadalajara invited us to join in with their Kid´s Day celebration at a park behind their church this year and we gladly accepted.  The party was very well organized, with teams going to different work stations and then ending together with an obstacle course and skit show.  The kids did a craft, played musical instruments, participated in skits, and learned a Bible lesson, as well as enjoying a hot-dog snack and playing on the playground.  They came home happy to have spent time with these special friends.
