Christmas Day in Africa

This has been a Christmas to remember in Africa! From Christmas celebrations with the children from the feeding center and staff to our staff Christmas party to delivering Christmas gifts of food and toys to the nearby village to cooking Christmas dinner for the children that are still in the village with us and 2 staff.

The two baby girls came of course and they were so sweet.

We shared some stories and we learned some more about African traditions that we can implement next year. Since most of the food was gone, I would say they liked it!

After dinner we played a few games around the table.

 Today was hot but now the thunder is going and it is not raining but it has cooled down. It still amazes me that it is December and there are so many beautiful flowers around our house. I can say I don’t miss the cold and God knew what He was doing when He called me to Africa!


Even the dogs had a taste of Christmas dinner AND took time to smell the flowers!
                                        The girls were really worn out after a big afternoon!

Christmas Blessings to each of you around the world!
