Merry Christmas!

It's hard to believe it's only two weeks away, especially because we still feel like it's summertime! But we have our tree set up, with gifts under it, and the kids are more than ready :)

Last week we had a visitor from our home church come stay for six days. It was an encouraging visit, and he was able to bring gifts from family members and friends, which was really nice. We weren't sure how Christmas might look this year, so his trip ended up being perfect timing for bringing our gifts along. We took him to the beach for a day, and he was able to participate in the class we held for the neighbor kids.

We've been hosting a class every two weeks, working through the Bible stories from the beginning. This Saturday we will have our last class before the holidays, with a theme of Jesus coming as a baby to be the Savior of the world.

Overall we are doing well and feeling much more adjusted to life here. The kids got their Judo uniforms and are now able to learn some fighting moves, so they're enjoying it more. Our relationships with the neighbor kids are growing, as well as our friendships with our neighbors/fellow church goers, which is so encouraging. 

Prayer requests:

Ben turned in his resumé, so pray that he can teach an English class next quarter at the university, and more importantly, for the Lord to be working in the hearts of those he may teach, so that they will be receptive to Him.

Relationships within the family as we all continue to adjust to being home together so much of the time.

We plan to start the homework help program on a weekly basis in January. Some kids have expressed an interest in learning English, so we will be including short English lessons, as well as continuing to teach stories from the Bible.

For our personal relationships with the Lord as we grow and change during this new and different season in our lives.

As always, we are so thankful for every one of you and the role you play in making our ministry here possible. We wish you all much joy this holiday season!
Last week's lesson was on Noah, so the kids made arks with lots of little animals to go inside.
Two weeks ago we made snakes after hearing the story of the first time humans sinned.
