living in rwanda // christmas eve.

the past week has been a whirlwind of activity. our Bible study is growing every week; and we have been working on a project with some of the women from our study. the twins are growing every day, and the other day when they were at our house, we saw them smile for the first time!

chad, edward, and the boys finished building the rabbit cages and we now have 5 rabbits living in our backyard. isaac collects food for them each day; they eat so much!

and on wednesday we spent the day baking and decorating cookies for a Christmas party with some friends who live nearby. we ate cookies, drank tea, decorated gingerbread houses, and sang Christmas carols.

tonight, isaac is getting baptized, and we are attending a Christmas eve celebration at church. tomorrow we will spend time together and celebrate the birth of our Savior. 

you'd see that today holds something special, something holy and not superficial; so here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives. here's to Jesus Christ who saved our lives.
