Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

On Christmas Eve President and Sister Martino invited all the couples to the mission home for the evening and to stay over


We had a wonderful dinner

Prepared by these two sisters

There is this beautiful nativity near the mission home that people come to see. We stood by it and sang Christmas carols and passed out cookies

Sister Tieschner showing the gift she got in our gift exchange

Sister Woodruff brought these paper hot air balloons that we lit and watched them float away. Hoping and praying we wouldn't cause a fire somewhere!!

The next morning we went to the government hospital and took gifts to the children's wing

The hospital was crowded and poor and it could be depressing but we tried to focus on the bit of cheer we could bring to them

Beautiful babies

There were about 50 children ranging from new born to teens

They all had parents with them

She never let go of her Minnie Mouse

This one wanted her orange but she was not too sure about us
The babies didn't know what to think of us but the parents were very appreciative
This one was scared to death of us.
She is so cute

I think she was wondering who these strange white people were.

I wish I could bring them all home.
