December 23rd

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.

Really love thr idea of thr white elephant gift exchange. Such fun.

Christmas carolling is atradition In India too.

Youth chiors from various churches visit. They are treated to Christmas goodies and donations for their churches.

Merry Christmas from Oma. What you're doing is terrific. It's exciting to see your beautiful family and see your efforts and Christianity. I am here in Naples with Mike and Steven Sapp and it seems such a long, long way from you. Happy New Year too.

Love,
Oma, Mike and Steven
