Alissa’s Special Picnic …..

Alissa and children 2

After sending Anne some photos of my trips to Nepal which were taken when I visited all my  Children in The  Sunshine Children’s Home, Anne asked me to share with you  about one of our much cherished times, a special Picnic, which I’m very happy to be able to do.

Allisa and Children

In the middle of the summer months in Nepal it gets sweltering hot in Kathmandu, so as a treat we took the children and the two live in domestic Staff, who have become very fondly a part of this big beautiful family, on an outing to the Botanical Gardens in the south of the Kathmandu Valley.

Allisa and Carers

Although it isn’t the norm in Nepal to value and accept the workers, the children are being taught to love and respect everyone and these two caring dedicated young women who are now also learning English, were delighted to join us.

Thanks to all those who gave for their wonderful donations for the Children, including the clothes and toys, which I have been able to squeeze in with the luggage on my trips to be with them in Nepal, these made it possible for everyone to be dressed smartly for the special occasion and the girls took their dolls and the younger boys their favourite teddies.

Grannie Annies boys

Anne, affectionately known to the children as Grannie Annie, has brought such joy to their little hearts, Anne  helps to support the children as others kindly do too but just like a Grannie, gives then Treats too, this time it was to buy all the girls the loveliest dolls for their Birthdays.


Once through the gates and what seemed a long way from the dust and pollution of Kathmandu, the green paradise was being pleasantly enjoyed by us all. Adults and older children carried along with them a portion of the carefully prepared picnic foods and drinks.

Before one could even make a plan, the ecstatic brood were eagerly off in all different directions, exploring new cobbled pathways, fresh little waterfalls and rock -pools, then up amongst the rose gardens.

There was a huge sigh of relief to be felt when they all came together to relax on a large grassed area and put on their party hats to enjoy our picnic lunch.

Boys will be Boys

Then in what seemed like a matter of no time, once again the children were excitedly hanging from trees and swinging from vines, running up and down slopes and in circles around where we sat.

As the happy group moved from place to place there seemed to be a whole new set of surroundings which entertained them until when as late as possible, we made our way back to the bus. As we were rocked up and down on the bumpy narrow roads descending through quaint mountain villages back to home in Kathmandu, completely exhausted, happily contented, smiling little faces fell asleep, whilst others sang about one of the best days of their young lives.

Blessings to you all – Alissa

  1. Well you brought a couple tears to my eyes! Your words touch my heart, and I love you as well, Sister Anne. ❤ I would so love to join you "in the garden"…what a lovely invitation!
    I too thank The Lord for our Unity in Him!
    In His Love,
    (Copied from reply on my blog! :))

  2. What a wonderful picnic of love!! Blessings both ways! Praise Our Sweet Jesus Who said,
    “When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.” – Mark 10:14-16

    • Thank you Nancy for your words of wisdom and I agree, until we become Trusting and dependent like children we will not know the complete freedom we can have in Christ Jesus or the wonderful Hope we have for Eternity.

      Children need our Love and our guidance, they need to feel they are special and valued Hummmm I must be a child, how wonderful to know others care – Thank you Nancy for doing so, you also have a beautiful heart my dear Sister.

      Christian Love Always – Anne

    • Hi again Nancy, I thought it would be good if we could share together on my Freedomborn’s Kingdom Garden, I don’t Post much here and have very few followers, so we can share together what’s on our hearts in the privacy of the garden .

      But first I want to say in all honesty Nancy, that since Blogging in America I have not met someone who has such a Loving heart both for Jesus, His Truth and other people as you dear Sister and I give thanks for our Unity in Jesus Christ.

      If you would prefer that we share privately by e-mail or by Phone, just let me know but I do want to thank you Nancy for accepting my sharing so far in the Love that it was given and for not taking offense when I corrected you, yes I know I can be very direct but I also appreciate that those who share with with me are too, as long as they can confirm with Scripture by the empowering of The Holy Spirit their correction for any error they feel I have shared.

      I Love you in The Lord dear Nancy – Anne

      P.S I will also post this reply on your Blog.

Share your thoughts I value you and them
