Lots of Christmas Events

   We had a beautiful candlenight service for Christmas in Tamboril. Kids hit it out of the park with their Nativity play. We were very proud of our Sunday School teachers who out of the blue were presented with gifts of appreciation from the parents at the end of the service. Sweet serving spirit throughout the night from everyone, God really blessed.  

   The same week we had Luis Marco and Suzette's wedding.  Luis Marco hopped in the back of my truck on a rainy day here in 2008 and literally never got out. He received Christ in the church here in Tamboril in 2009. Then in 2010 he began to plead with our Haiti team to travel (more like off-road) to Pignon to tell Suzette about Jesus. After a fun blessed trip Suzette fell in love with Jesus and there Wedding was another giant step for this precious couple. 

   The next week we had our full time worker's retreat.  We took all the workers and their familes up to Constanza (freezing cold) and just relaxed and had a lot of fun as well as some great meetings focusing on our goals for 2012.
