Christmas Eve day we went to the colonia for a few hours and the stopped at Melodys Orphanage. Macedonio was preparing a gourmet dinner for Jaime and his immediate family. All the orphanage children went to be with family for Christmas. What a feast!!! We sang a few songs, exchanged a few gifts and each of us shared a 2020 Thanksgiving story.
Christmas day was another day of feasting as Bob Brown, and Herb and Carol Moering joined us for dinner. Today, Saturday, we headed to Mexico 🇲🇽 for our annual Christmas celebration in the colonia. We split the colonia into 2 shifts to keep social distancing in place. About 50 families came for shift 1. We sang a couple songs Feliz Navidad, and Te Doy Gloria. Jaime gave an emotional Christmas message while some servants brought coffee and cake to everyone.
Everyone passed through the community center, got thier food, a coat, and thier gifts, and then we repeated the whole process for the next families. Whew!!!! It was a total team effort to make it all happen, and that includes all of our supporters, without whom none of this would be possible.
