First, let's back it up…there was THANKSGIVING! We had a bunch of ex-pat friends over, and a few bolivian friends and celebrated all the things we are so thankful for. Like friends! My favorite comment was from a 6 year old little boy who lived in New Zealand and now here, who said, "I'm thankful that God is with me wherever I am". Well said, Isaac, well said.
|This was us when we were done with the party…it is hard work hosting 75 people for a formal dinner!|
For the ESL classes, I made a bunch of props, and they acted out the Chrsitmas story in English. It is one of the best things I've ever seen.

Our big project was Kid's Club Christmas.
|Prep day one or two… measuring, weighing, re-bagging flour, sugar and rice.|
|Prep day 3, sorting and bagging gifts. Teddy bears for girls, trucks for boys and snacks for all!|
|Day of the party. We were excited, nervous, scared...|
|There was lots of logistical prep work. Here are our two youngest workers.|
|Then the people came. And they were many. We did normal games for the first hour.|
|happy volunteers! (These are a few of our bible study girls!)|
|Then prizes and gifts were handed out.|
|happy, happy day for all!|
