Christmas time anywhere is so very special because Jesus came to us. And because some of our students are far from home and Holidays are hard without family, we always try to make Christmas so meaningful and special.
For our kids it is a time of singing Happy Birthday to Jesus!
This year our Syrian friends asked us over for Christmas Eve. They said it was just fingerfoods, so we all ate before. And well, fingerfoods to them means you use your fingers, not just appetizers. So, we were so full that night! And we all had a good laugh over the mix-up!
Our kids together have a blast!
That night there was such stormy weather that ten people lost their lives on the island from landslides. Many lost their homes. Please be praying for these hurting families. This view of us driving home felt like we were back in snow with all the mud and rain.
Christmas Morning we went to church and the kids sang a special. Then, later in the afternoon we all had a big meal together giving the students a break from the Kitchen that day. We played games.
Praised God with candlelight.
Felt like we were with family.
And exchanged homemade gifts with one another.
