This year we held Christmas parties during our last English classes (10 classes and 8 parties total) and did a party for friends the week after classes finished at our church planting location. We were encouraged that over the years the kids are learning and memorizing the true meaning of Christmas. This year we had new kids who for the first time heard that we celebrate Christmas because of Christ, not Santa Claus. It seems like such a small thing, but in a Christ-less culture it is encouraging to share the true meaning of the Season and celebrate in fun ways with the kids God brings our way. Pray for all these seeds to be watered and for many of these kids to believe!
