This week we are sharing pictures from Pakistan. We received news on January 5th 2020, which was Epiphany, that a box with 419 rosaries we sent had arrived. Children in 11 new Children's Rosary groups were waiting to each receive a rosary. On January 17th we received the first pictures of the children receiving the rosaries. The group that was visited on January 17th was the Children is Rosary in Saroky, Pakistan. They held their first meeting on November 24th 2019. But the children had been meeting all that time without a rosary. Special preparations were made for the day the children were to receive their own rosary. The Church was decorated with a Children's Rosary banner.
When I asked Babu Chand, who oversees this group, if the children had been waiting a long time for their own rosary, he answered simply, "Yes."
The rosaries for this group were laid out in a beautiful way before the children. The children lined up and each had a turn receiving a rosary.
This group has a weekly meeting time of Fridays at 5PM.
We feel it is important to show these pictures so individuals realize how the donations that are given to the Children's Rosary have been helping children.
These images are also hopeful. They show the faces of the young children of our next generation. These children will not only keep the rosary they received but they are using the rosaries each week in their Children's Rosary prayer group.
If you would like to help these efforts consider making a donation to the Children's Rosary. To make a donation click HERE.
