Christmas 2009 Ministry Pictures

This year, to celebrate Christmas at our church plant, instead of our usual Christmas service, we decided to have a sit-down buffet dinner and invited parents and adults that we've known through the years. We also invited Ed's relatives and our "white" friends who are all unsaved.

Before the meal, the Student Center kids recited a Christmas poem and sang Christmas songs. Ed also shared about the true meaning of Christmas and why we celebrate it.

Also, every year we give gifts to the kids. This year, our co-worker, Jenni Starkey, provided for the gifts. The children really enjoyed their gift bags.

The day after Christmas, Jenni hosted a party for kids our her street. They decorated the cookies that our intern, Liz Stevens baked. The kids had a blast. Also, Darlene told the Christmas story to the kids. It was the first time for all of those kids to hear it!

We thank God for opportunities of planting seeds in the hearts of these Thais through special events like Christmas.
