The choir and our drama teams worked together to put together a wonderful show and a heartfelt ministry.
KT and Jackie have both joined the drama teams and are enjoying making new friends and serving the Lord with them.
The evening after the cantada, KT and Jackie's AWANA group, Trek, put together a live nativity outside of our church. It was so weird to be running around outside barefoot at Christmas time (they couldn't wear their 21st century shoes in their Jerusalem duds). The group acted out the story of Christ's birth while Luke 2 was read. KT was an angel. Then, Jackie concluded the service by singing "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem." It was really beautiful and moving.
And, as a side note, the 22nd is Barry's birthday.
We did a few neat things today like finishing up our shopping, having pancakes, making Christmas goodies (Ol' Kate Balls - Daddy, I bet you will appreciate that one!), wrestling with the kids, and having a Melvin's burger (yep, I ate the meat!).
I hope to post some pics from the day sometime soon, but in the meantime....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BARRY!
I LOVE YOU.
