Christmas Fiesta

We wanted to bless the kids at the feeding center in Los Brasiles this Christmas so with the help of a few friends we had a fabulous meal for them as well as many of the Adults living in the area. The meal consisted of rice with chicken, vegetables and other good stuff. As we arrived the word got around quickly that we were there and before we knew it over 200 people poured into the center. The majority of these folks live in shacks made from old tin roofs they found laying around or at the dump. A meal like this is very rare so it was really a blessing for them. The kids were really excited as I set up the sound system. We started off by singing a few Christmas songs which went over like a led balloon but was fun. Next I shared a short Christmas message with them. Basically it was about God's gift of eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ and how the Bible tells us it is more blessed to give then receive. The fun part began when we started to dish out the food. It was like trying to hold back the tide. All in all I think everyone was blessed and had a good time. We thank the Lord for the funds to provide this meal for them and hope to be back there soon.
Feliz Navidad!!!
