Lear Christian Friends,

Ha_,y^:,7 New Yearf The Lord has (jivon us another year to serve Him, As we
looli back over the yast year, can we say we have done our best to further
hie kini^doa? Ho_,:)efully we can all say yes to that question and start an
other year to do even more for His liinjdom.
The Lord has been so

to us here at Casa de Ninos,

We had a very

iierry Christina^ji, thanlvs to yeople like you who made itpossible. The child
ren received more than enough toys, clothes, and candy. Can you imagine
eighteen kids opening their pifbs at the , sanio time?. We were knee deep in
wrapping i'aper but what fun we had. It was hard to keep up with all the

exclamations of what was fourd in each package. Needless to say, our house
^vas full of Christmas joyi

We had 26 for Ciiristmas dinner which consisted

of bailed chicken, creamed salad, macaroni and cheose, and homemade cookies.
All was enjoyed and none left over!

Christmas Eve we had a Christmas X-'ropran here in the home for the new conprepation. The children did an excellent job on the dramas which they pre
sented and everyone joined in with the beautiful Christmas hymns. Tnere

were 36 peox^le ^.resent, A house full but what joy it brinps to ones heart
to know wo were all united for one purx'jose to celebrate ou.r Saviour's birth.

The "Land project" as mentioned in Lecember newsletter is still a ;iroject

of prayer, . The land is beinp held by the court as result of the owner's
death. So fortunately , wo have a little more time to raise the money. If
the Lord s willinp, we will have the money v/hen the lepal matters are com
pleted, We send a special thanlvs to those of you who have and are respondinp
to this Gp;ecial need,

2*ew Years Eve was spent patiently waitinp for 12 o-'clock so v/c could all wish
one another "Hap-)py New Year" and send the kids off to bed. Seriously, wo
enjoyed the time topether as a family. We had chocolate cupcakes, popcorn,
and lemonade. We were all set with p:uzzles, pamos, and colorinp books to
keepj the children busy until 12. To our surprise, wo did not need any of
then. All I did was start poppinp corn our new hot-air pcc)por (piven
by Peachtree City Christian Church) and all wore in a trance. As lonp as
it was poppanp all eyes wore open wide,
could be such an excellent baby sitter.

I never knew somethinp so simp^.le

The New Year was really broupht in with the arrival of Pat's father and
uncle,or as the children call them, Grandpia 1 and Grandp/a, 2, Thoy cane with
the intentions of rep)ai.rinp thinpa around tiie house. They are tryinp vepy
hard but when they fix one thinp, two more fall apart. We all enjoy havlnp
them both and will miss them when they leave.

Friday evenings the ladies of the now congregation are meetin^^ to study the
Life of Christ, V/e really enjoy stud^:in^ and sharin-;; together in the different homes. In the meantime all the e iildren meet at our house while our
brave x^^^acher (Mi^'uel) babysits by s lowinx; filmstrixjG, Mi^^uel and his wife
Adela are very sxdrit filled workers!for the Lord, They are doinj a tremen-
