our class project

So each year at Christmas time, each of the Sunday School classes in our youth group come up with a service project they can do.  This is an attempt to remind us that Christmas is about serving others as Jesus came to do for us.  Most classes collected canned food or coats for the needy.  Some visit sick or elderly people and help them with yard work.  I was really proud of our class this year (Christie and I teach 9th grade).  Our class collected $150 of their own money (that is a lot of money in 9th grade) and made three Kiva loans with it.  I found this video today which does a great job of explaining how Kiva works so I thought I'd share it.  Enjoy:
