Well, the holidays are a bit different here. Is there thanksgiving in Africa? Well, not really, but we still gather, eat too much and visit. Christmas is EVERYWHERE. Even many stores here have small decorations available. We are grateful that it is not a commercial holiday here(yet), but rather a time for families to be together. Most businesses, all schools and the majority of shops close down from 15 december until after the new year-for that purpose. (reminds me of ND in the 80s, Family and relationships were the priority). We pray that this element will remain here-as it gives us great open doors to have great conversations about a great God, born in the flesh to be our Savior!
We are SO thankful for you and are hopeful to see you in February. May the Lord bless you and keep you, make His face shine on you-and give you PEACE!
