Santa Sitter

On December 8th Light of the World Ballet held the Santa Sitter fundraiser at its studio. It was a fundraiser where parents could leave their kids with us while they go Christmas shopping or out on a date. To our surprise and delight, fifteen kids showed up ready for some Christmas fun. They played “Pin the Star on the Christmas Tree”, a relay game of dressing up as one of the Wise Men or an angel, and posed as the nativity scene. After Miss Ashley told them the Christmas story and the real meaning of Christmas, the kids enjoyed some pizza for dinner. Light of the World Company, Trainees, and Youth Ballet performed “Christmas Celebration” for the kids after which we taught them a Christmas dance of their own. Toward the end of the evening, Miss Ashley showed the kids “the bridge” salvation illustration and talked about how Jesus brings us close to God the Father. Three precious children eagerly raised their hands and said a prayer of salvation. One little boy said, “I want lots of Jesus!” . God was greatly glorified that night through those sweet kids that we had the privilege to spend time with. -Karissa
