Dave Thomas, with the Brighton Smile Shop (CO), shared with us a write-up from Mickey Hilton about their trip to the Philippines.
“This winter, Mickey and Melanie Hilton had the privilege of giving out Toys For God’s Kids cars to young children in Manila and Calauan, Laguna in the Philippines. Many of the children who received the cars live in simple, one-room cinder block homes, many without running water or electricity. While these children have very few material possessions, they are so much fun to be around, full of joy, innocence, and laughter. They are also hard workers and spent many days helping the team paint and clean up trash, making the local church building and youth center both beautiful and welcoming places. The cars were handed out during weekend sessions called Kids Jam, which is similar to Sunday School – allowing the team to sing songs, perform Bible-based skits, and deliver cars to hundreds of bright and shining smiles!”
