Partying in the kids!

Children are extremely valuable.  Sister Tiffany has been working with the children in Primary. She loves helping with the kids especially when they can have a party.  They had a wonderful turnout with about 55 children.  The primary in the Mwan branch on record has 126 children, we normally get around 35 to 40 consistently coming each week.
Catch it or it splatters
The balloon tucked safely (?) between the knees
Things just getting started. . . Come on kids, lets play!
Here she is getting them set up to play the water balloon game.
Now how do I throw that ballon again?

All over the world at the end of day,
Heav’nly Father’s children kneel down and pray,
Each saying thank you in his own special way,
Saying thank you, thank you in his own special way.
“Gracias.” (grah-see-ahs) “Malo.” (mah-loh) “Wir danken dir.” (veer don-ken deer)
All over the world tender voices hear.
Some say “tak,” (tahk) others “merci,” (mare-see)
“Kansha shimasu,” (kahn-shah shee-mah-sue) we thank thee.
Our Heavenly Father hears them;
He understands each tongue.
Our Heav’nly Father knows them;
He loves them, loves them, ev’ry one.
Kinisou Chapur
Ready. ready. ready - toss it!
The rule here is you have to hold the balloon between you legs upper or lower and go to the other side, give it to a partner without using your hands.  Boy this was a fun one to watch. Some kids were very talented with the balloon.  A lot of excitement and laughs with this game.  
Lunchtime - let's "monga"
Lots of food and candy for the children.

“Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. “Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3–4). In the Book of Mormon we read of the risen Lord teaching the Nephites that they must repent and be baptized “and become as a little child” or they could not inherit the kingdom of God.
Throw it gently. . . These children are so fun to play games with. They are very polite to one another and share with each other.  However they are loud and noisy when they get excited.
