Monday evening, these 32 students got together and held a Christmas party for all of the missionary kids (25 of them under the age of 13).
They played games, decorated cookies, gave our children presents and then shared the true meaning of Christmas, Jesus Christ. It was so fun to watch the students practice their English with our children as we have been in this same role with French for the last 3 months.
We were so touched at their thoughtfulness, their kindness and taking time during their last week of school to plan something for our kids. We are thankful for this time in our journey, for new friends in Quebec, for new missionary friends who will soon be in Africa as well and for encouragement and the fellowship we've encountered with other believers.
