Let the Games Begin!
It was a day filled with friendly competition as our ZOE kids took part in the annual Sports Day at their elementary school. The students were divided into three teams: red, blue and orange. The festivities began with an official opening ceremony complete with a flaming torch that was carried into the “stadium” by one honored athlete. Then, all spectators and participants rose for the playing of the Thai National Anthem.
The children competed in a variety of events including sprinting, 3-km run, 4-man relay, hula hoop contest, cheerleading and an unforgettable “dance off!” Fun and friendly fellowship was had by all.
Let me in, coach!
Our ZOE kids are blessed to attend a Christian elementary school affiliated with another children’s home. This is a rare opportunity for kids in Thailand to be able to attend a school where the Gospel is taught in all subjects. Eventually ZOE will build our own school on campus to allow for convenience and a safe, secure environment to learn. For now we are so thankful for this special school and its caring staff.
Of course, Sports Day would not be complete without a traditional awards ceremony including fancy medals and delicious snacks and goodies. Game on!
