Bible Church Leaders’ Christmas Appreciation Dinner

This past Saturday we helped out once again with the annual Bible Church Leaders’ (and families) Christmas Appreciation Dinner. There were at least 150 family members in attendance. Bethie and her mother made 105 cupcakes (101 of which actually made it to the dinner! BTW, I didn’t eat any, so someone had two!). We helped serve the food and I took pictures to share (the lighting was difficult for me, so the pics aren’t the greatest; need to keep working on my noobish camera skills).

We sat at a table with a church leader who is an engineer but has been out of work and looking for over a year. Apparently, he has discovered that his somewhat dormant English skills are mostly what is keeping him from getting hired. We helped him practice his English a little throughout the night. He has a wife and three teenagers who were there. Their faith has been stretched as you can imagine. We were so impressed with them all and their joy, sweetness, as well as humility. We couldn’t help but slip them an “ofrenda” (offering) before we left. May God continue to provide for them and lead Daniel to the job He has for him.

Next year, we will likely be attending another of these types of dinners but in Puebla instead of Querétaro. We’re still trying to wrap our minds around all the changes ahead of us. Until then, Merry Christmas & Feliz Naviad to all!

Here are some pics from the evening:
