|Fader Family in Burundi|
For Christmas this year, our gift from the Lord was to spend 3 1/2 weeks with most of Eli's family! Not only did we get a good chunk of time together but we got a chance to experience the lives of two of Eli's brothers and their families in a remote area in Burundi where they serve as missionaries.

We enjoyed pitching in and helping with several projects. One of the things we did was plant flowers and a vegetable garden.

We were thrilled to get to meet our 6 month old nephew, Hudson. Originally we thought he'd be 3 by the time we met him for the first time!
|The Annual Hospital Party|
Jason and Caleb, Eli's brothers, were both awarded gifts of appreciation by the Hospital Board.

Those of you who know Eli know that he loves projects. There were plenty of projects for him to do while we were in Burundi. In this photo, along with Evan and a Burundian fellow, they built an examination table for the hospital.
We are now in Kenya for a few weeks attending meetings and our annual conference with our SIM South Sudan team. We will fly back to South Sudan on February 2, feeling rested, refreshed, and ready for a new year.
