I'm sure you all have heard that bad things happen in 3s. I decree and declare that great things happen in 3s.
Saturday night we had our annual Sunday school class Christmas party. The class adopted the kids at Melodys Orphanage in Reynosa and brought gifts for all the kids and staff. Lee read a great Christmas story, we sang a few songs and yes, we are some fantastic food. Sunday night was the Christmas party at Melodys Orphanage in Reynosa. The kids had a few dramas to present, they also sang Feliz Navidad. The worship time and the Word, precluded yes, more food. Monday, Paula hosted a party for the sewing class and many other invited friends. I think forty or so in all. Sara flew in from North Carolina to join the party.
While the girls had their party we went to Sam's Club in Reynosa to buy the food for the monthly food outreach on the 28th. We also picked up 200 soccer balls that Power Ministry donated to us.
I printed out a news letter to put in the Christmas cards were trying to get mailed out. I was in such a hurry to get the letter done, I couldn't possibly include everything from the year, only a few highlights. One thing I neglected to mention was the time we spent with family. A couple of short camping trips, and a weeks stay with Lea, Kristin and Larry.
We are heading home to be with them for a few days. We fly home Christmas afternoon. I tried to change our flight to the 26th, but no luck, sold out! A few days will be better than none.
If you don't or didn't get a Christmas card or news letter, sorry about that. Merry Christmas to all and thanks for the continued prayers and support that keep us keeping on.
