Happy new year! . 

A team of seven women with the World Race came to serve with us on the 28th of Novvember to the 21st of December..  We enjoyed getting to know them and appreciated all their help in ministry.  They each gave their testimony on the radio and several at church.  They taught English at the school.  They helped us clear out everything from the church house in preparaton for a new ceiling that was moldy from leaks.   We took 24 children to 360 water park.

We had a Christmas celebration at the church on the 20th, more than seventy children attended along with about 39 adults.  There were many Christmas presents. Each child received a box of gifts from Phil and Isabelle with the Seed Church, and gifts were given by Num and Ann.  The team helped with the food serving and cleanup.  I shared the Christmas story from Luke 2 and Num shared his testimony and gave an invitation.  15 children and 1 adult were saved.
