Last Sunday the church held its annual Christmas program and dinner. Scott and Ruth Yingling and family pretty much provided most of the program. The missionary wives provided all the cakes for the dessert.
I managed to get this video of Scott and Ruth with their Josiah and Brianna playing “Joy to the World” with hand bells. The lighting and sound were a bit rough but I think it’s worth putting up here.
On Monday we had the Mexican missionaries from up at Camp Koinonia down for a night with us to relax a little, enjoy some cheesecake for Bethie’s birthday, play some games, watch a movie and to be here for our first annual family puzzle-game-movie day yesterday. Along with the Colorado family, we invited the Downs (from Queretaro) and Yinglings (from here in San Juan) to come over to have fun and let the kids get together. Yinglings couldn’t come but we still had a great time, a lot of laughs and great fellowship. The snacks were yummy too. Daniel Colorado is 11 and Cameron is 10 and those two had a great time. Daniel didn’t want to leave when his parents decided it was time for them to head back up to the Camp.
The Colorados are in the process of moving out of the borrowed, parked RV at the camp and getting into a new house built nearby by a believer who lives in the U.S. and who wants to use that house and property as a resort for bringing down unsaved business contacts in order to reach them outside of their “comfort zone.”
Last weekend, someone cut part of the barbed-wire fence around the property of this new house where Enrique had parked his truck overnight and apparently stole the front license plate off the Colorado’s truck. This has created a legal headache for them, and so far as it has been futile to get help from a government department since all the workers are on vacation. They need this department to give them some sort of document to clear their old plate and replace it with a new one. Pray for the Colorados as they move just a mile away and that God will allow them to straighten out this license plate problem.
