A few days ago I shared about our Family Maters seminars that we are sponsoring in Central Asia... The idea is that if we can train couples and families with strong family values, they will be able to share with others they come across, and in turn we will be able to develop stronger united families that will take responsibility for bringing up their children ... In the first day of seminars, it was evident that many of the couples had never had time together never mind with their families... We first need to build stronger healthier marriage relationships if we are going to make the homes a better place to raise children...
Our friends decided that the best way to do this was to set up a date night... where couples could go out for a nice meal together... Since money is usually the main thing stopping this from happening in the first place, and we do not have a big budget for this program, they decided to transform a local building into a Restaurant for the night..
It was a great day
Many of the youth donated there time to cook and waiter
Some couples after being married for may years, had their first date
Now this was no small task as we now have over 40 couples determined to break the cycle...
BY the way we are now up to 14 confirmed pie in the face challengers
I need 6 more before we start next Monday... are you in?
