Hanging of the Greens is never a disappointment and 2018 was no exception! The students of Eastern New Mexico University are always upstanding hosts. They do nothing but love on our children. Games and bouncy houses were set up in their elegant ballroom located upstairs in the Campus Union Building.
Our kiddos, along with the children from the Christian Children’s Home, enjoyed a buffet of yummy snacks throughout the event. ENMU students dressed up as Santa and Mrs. Clause and handed out presents to all the children. “Elves” brought Mr. and Mrs. Clause the presents from underneath a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. One of the most glorious parts of the night was hearing all the children scream and yell in excitement for one another. They were very joyful for what they were receiving, but just as much appreciation was shown when others were receiving their gifts.
All in all, Hanging of the Greens 2018 was a very memorable event and a blessing to the children of the New Mexico Baptist Children’s Home and Family Ministries.
