One of the highlights of Christmas this year was helping to throw a party for the Fistula ladies (ladies with severe complications following difficult, unattended childbirth), their children, and others who are staying in “the village” (located behind the hospital, patients in between surgeries or family members of patients often live here in quite rough conditions for months). The Fistula Program provided gifts for the fistula ladies, and several friends of ours from the States funded beautiful gifts for all of the children in the village and in the hospital. Our kids and another family prepared a Christmas play and the village kids joined in as angels, shepherds and wise men. We shared about how Jesus is our greatest gift and the reason we celebrate. It was wonderful to see our kids joyfully serve food and pass out presents. Seeing the joy on the faces of all who received lunch and gifts was priceless! What a blessing to be able to share the love of God in this way! Thank you to all who are touching precious lives through your prayers, support and gifts!
