Missionaries Don't Take Holiday

…at least not at the same time as everyone else in the world.  Over the past 30 days I've come to realize that people who work for the church have their schedules packed around the festive season.  It's a good thing because that means that others in the community are taking their time off to be active in the church, but WOW does it make for a busy 30 days.  Between normal services, outreach events, food collections and donations and parish visits I've had my hands full. I love it…  Here are a few pictures to share.

All in all, I am having an amazing time serving here and I pray you feel the same about the work God has given you to do too.

Christ is Born; Glorify Him!
