Merry Christmas

Yesterday we celebrated Christmas with almost 100 people from around the world.  Every year NIC has a potluck lunch at the church hall. It is great for all the students, domestic workers and refugees who would otherwise be alone on Christmas.  We are thankful that God has provided us with this amazing church family. I(DeAnn) was in charge of decorations and general organization.  Thanks to Cami and Suzy for all their help and to Christie and Madara for helping organize the kitchen.  We were needlessly worried that there might not be enough food, but as usual, God provided an abundance, including 3 turkeys (although we did run out of gravy.)

Check out the photos on flickr. And click here for a link to Rick’s blog  where you can find a video of everyone.

    That’s a very nice tradition and a good way to bring community to the displaced people of NIC at Christmas time. We had a Christmas lunch on Sunday with the church and then just family time on Christmas day. I didn’t miss the big gathering for Christmas, but I really missed it at Thanksgiving time.
