Luke 2:10-14 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”
Many of the children that have extended family return to them for the long school holidays which includes, over Christmas. So, we have Christmas on December 25 for those that are here. Then we have an additional celebration with gifts from wonderful people from the USA when the ones on holiday return. This is always a blessed time of reunion of the older ones and celebration of the birth of Christ, great food, gifts and conversation. We were thankful to have Deborah and Ray Mastnjak here for the holiday from the Board of Zion USA!!!!
Luke 2:20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
