Dec. 23rd: We had a team Christmas party with Christmas caroling and a fun white elephant gift exchange. The funniest gift was when Canberra (the shyest member of our team) opened a pair of little boy race car underwear! After the party, the rest of the team drove out to Gondolo village (4 miles away) to Christmas carol. We discovered that Christmas caroling is also a custom among the Uduk and Mabaan tribes. On Sunday the Mabaan church members came to our compound singing and dancing. And on Tuesday night, the Uduk church youth came caroling too. So we decided to return the blessing.
