Melissa and her parents organized the first annual Christmas party for all the workers here at the Heartline Guest House.
We have been noticing that when we have pizza for dinner, the next day all the left overs are gone by breakfast. The Haitians seem to love pizza as much as Americans They end up eating all the left overs! So because of that, we decided to have homemade pizza for our Christmas party. Before eating we read the Christmas story, Luke 2, from the Creole Bible.
John & Melissa organized a bunch of games which had prizes! The very
professional wild games included cookie stacking contents, golf putting, and a marshmallow run! It was fun to see the workers smiling and having such a great time!
It was probably the first time they have opened Christmas presents – ever! John (Melissa’s dad) observed that while they opened up each of their gifts, they were very meticulous opening the presents and saved the wrapping paper after opening. The presents were all donated by Melissa’s family, their Bible study members, and our MN friends. Thank you so much to everyone for being a part of this wonderful celebration! We wish you could have been here to see the joy on their faces!
Wergsy was thanking us for the party and said, “It’s only God who can thank you enough”. Wow, what a statement?!
Happy Birthday dearest Jesus… We love you and we are so grateful you rescued, healed, and restored us.
