for the life was made visible; we have seen it… 1 John 1:2-3

27 Dec

On Christmas Day our chapel was transformed into Bethlehem. It was filled throughout the day with children and young people who came to adore the newborn King, Christ the Lord. With each group, we shared the story of Christ’s birth and His coming among us. During the singing of “Angels We Have Heard on High,” each person came forward to adore Jesus. Some of our children were very poorly dressed, and we thought about the Shepherds who came from the fields to worship Jesus. Everyone received a gift from Jesus. For the children that we have been working with this past year, we had special gifts prepared. The children we had never seen before were given bags of candy and little stuffed animals. It was truly as if God had provided the gifts for his little ones. We had enough for everyone. After we shared a delicious meal prepared by the ladies in the community. We added our own baked goods, too.

We both shared that this was the most meaningful Christmas we have ever had in our lives.

    And that’s the way it was in the beginning. A real Gospel of Joy. Placid
