This will be our second Christmas in Kenya. This year we happened upon a Christmas Tree. It took some tinkering, some duck-tape, and my two helpers (Amelia & Meredith) to get our tree up. Amelia made the star with some paper and tinfoil, Meredith hung a few ornaments on the tree, and we found some baby wrapping paper to wrap a few presents.
And although in particular we feel the distance from family and friends during Advent we in Africa celebrate with you the anticipation of the birth of our Messiah, Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
