We had 53 children at our Christmas Party! This is the largest attendance we have ever had at one of our events, and does not even include the many teenagers who helped us out. We played games, decorated cookies, made crystal snowball ornaments, and heard the Nativity story by reading the children’s book The Night of Las Posadas. It was the first event that some of our children’s younger siblings attended, and it was exciting to begin meeting our future students. Many of our children’s families stayed at the church during the party to visit, listen to the Saints game, and help out (a real blessing with such a large group of children!).
