Happy Leap Year!

Jump for joy with us as we celebrate the 29 February.

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him." Psalm 28 v 7

When our circumstances don't seem that favourable, and we can't see how anything good could possibly come from them, it is easy to despair. For a child living in poverty, hopelessness is constantly around them, so what could give cause for leaping? 

Children in our projects are told about a Heavenly Father who loves them, and will never leave them. And, as you can see, that is worth a jump for joy!
