'Tis the season for parties and presents and food...and food, and we have had our share (sometimes more than our share...) here in San Pedro. Last Thursday was the posada (Christmas party) for the Mexico-Canadiense English school. All the classes did a presentation in English, and there were songs, dramas, and games. On Friday the youth of Templo Cristiano Libertad held their own Christmas all-nighter, and on Saturday was the El Calor Christmas dinner. Finally on Sunday it was the church Christmas celebration with music, special choir presentations, and of course, more food....I was talking to a friend yesterday and we were both reflecting regretfully on the amount of food we seem to have eaten over the past few days, but then my friend shrugged and said, "Oh well, we have the rest of the year to work it off!" Which is true....and so, as I go in search of another sugar cookie, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has read the blog throughout 2009, to everyone who has supported us in prayer, in giving, in supplies, in visits. All of us in San Pedro wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, as we give thanks to God for the greatest gift ever given, salvation and eternal life through His Son, Jesus.
