Merry Christmas!

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

(Luke 2:8-14)

A couple of pieces of news from San Pedro:

  • We are happy to say that the church is still growing! Last week we baptized 3 new people in the church - one planned, and two who responded to a call that night in the service.
  • On a less happy note, El Calor was eliminated in the second round of playoffs, after two nail-biting penalty shoot-outs. Overall, however, the results of this season exceeded anyone's expectations, and the players are hard at work preparing for the new season in January.
