Christmas, part 1

Christmas in Haiti doesn’t “feel” like Christmas felt when we lived in IL, for many reasons.  Thankfully, there is a constant, and that is, the real reason that we celebrate this season, the birth of Christ!  We are thankful that we can celebrate the birth of Christ and share His love with those around us, in whatever country we are.   Take a look at a few of the fun Christmas activities happening around Cite Lumiere, from the past couple of weeks.

God’s blessings to all of our family and friends as you celebrate the birth of Christ, and the best gift ever given!
