The Sunday before Christmas our church had its annual “Christmas Eve” service in our home. We had some visitors including Rev. and Mrs. Versteeg and an unexpected group of about 20 people from our sister church in Waena who came to sing. Before the service the pastor had a representative from each group in the church (men, women, children etc…) light a candle. Then we all lit our candles and sang silent night. Following the service the group from Waena sang for us, gifts were given to the pastors family and the widow in our church. Then we shared a meal together. Because of the unexpected group, we saved the turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing that I’d made until the rice was gone. It was very yummy! We had about 70 people in our home this year! It was really nice to spend this time together in fellowship while remembering the incredible birth of our Lord and Saviour.
