Thanks to you, COTN children across the globe have been able to have Christmas parties this year. Today, we are excited to share photos from the parties in COTN's Dominican Republic communities, where more than 1,350 children in our five communities enjoyed Christmas parties and activities.

Christmas party in the Dominican Republic

Children had the opportunity to celebrate Jesus’ birth, hear the Word of God, eat good food, dance, participate in skits, sing, and receive gifts. These celebrations included I Love Baseball and University/Vocational Program students as well as our Village Partnership Program children.
