This past month has flown by and we can’t believe it’s christmas time already! We’ve had such a fun month leading up this time, and celebrating christmas differently.
For the past month we have been helping Wagna prepare a christmas show from Tuesday to Friday afternoons. Ellie taught the dance group the choreography to a christian, christmas version of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, Rhiannon helped with the singing group and Iain learned how to be a puppeteer. The show lasted three nights and it went fantastic! We couldn’t be more proud of all the children and young people, of how hard they worked and it was such a joy to see their passion for what they were doing and for the message they were sharing. We are so thankful for Wagna and all the hard work she put in to make this show work, it wouldn’t of been possible without her above and beyond committment and we are so thankful that she let us be a part of this amazing Christmas story!
With our english club, who come to our house on Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoons, we have been getting in the festive spirirt as they helped us decorate our house with decorations our supervisors had left, and with snowflakes we had made while talking about how God made us all individually and differently!
We also did some Christmas baking and Christmas crafts on our last Saturday before Christmas crafts.
Before our bible studies with Jane and Damian on thursdays we prepare a meal so we prepared a roast dinner to get in the festive spirit, complete with christmas crackers and a fireplace on the t.v! For our first attempt it went better than we expected!
Last night, on Christmas eve we went to our Brazilians friends house for food and fellowship with other missionaries, and this morning we will go back to celebrate christmas in true Brazilian fashion – with a barbeque! We are so thankful for our friends out here and feel so blessed that they have welcomed us into their home for christmas.
Prayer Points –
- That we can enjoy our christmas here, and that we really reflect on the true meaning of christmas
- Thankfulness for our friends out here and how continually welcoming they are
- For our projects as they close for Christmas, that we can go back refreshed and ready for the new term.
Merry Christmas to you all!
Love, Team Mozambique x
