“Where is the borned King of the Jews”? asked the three wise men. The children were looking for the newborn Jewish King. While looking for Him in the city, they actually realized that they should have a gift for the little Baby. They made a box of gold inside, a box filled with resin for a frankincense and a candle for myrrh. Other games were organized to find the place where the Baby was born and to find the star that takes them right there.
In addition to these thematic games we had other activities: a stroll to Tyulbeto, a stroll to Buzludzha, accompanied by snow skating. In the evening there were programs with games and plays, and we welcomed the New 2020 year together on the square in the town.
Besides the fun, there was a theme. During the topic, we discussed ways to look for Jesus in life. We should not hide from Jesus, but seek Him constantly. Every wise man seeks Jesus Christ.
We ended our meeting with a spiritual journey and a visit to the caves in Rakovski and Plovdiv. We visited 4 churches and each group left their gifts to the child Jesus.
The meeting was held in the town of Kazanlak from December 29. 2019 to January 2. 2020. We had a total of 31 people: 22 children, 9 organizers and helpers. “
