Giving Gift Bags to the Kids of La Carpio

Last Thursday Mike and Cam Clausing (missionary to Colombia) handed out nearly 100 gift bags to the kids of La Carpio. The gift bags were contributed by Valley Springs Presbyterian Church of Roseville, CA. This is one of their ministries. The church constructs the bags and fills them with toiletries, toys, candy, paper, pencil, Spanish kids Bible and more. They then ship the bags to missionaries to distribute to the children they work with. This is wonderful ministry.

La Carpio is a neighborhood in San Jose, Costa Rica where the poorest of the poor live in homes made of scrap metal and plywood. Every Thursday Mike goes to La Carpio to play with the kids and share Christ.

Watch this 4 minute and 30 second video to see the joy and excitement in the kids:
