Mata Gorda Christmas Party

This year we had a wonderful Christmas party again at the Mata Gorda Preschool. The kids performed two songs for their parents, received gifts and had refreshments. It was a great night and all the parents and kids really enjoyed themselves. Here is a video clip of the kids performing one of the songs, "Mi Burrito Sabanero" a typical Dominican Christmas song.

here are the kids with their gifts

Merry Christmas!!!

This past week at church, Cristian's sister's husband, Francisco, was named as one of the Associate Pastors. It was a proud moment for Cristian and I as they move into this important position of ministry at our church. The picture is of our head pastor, Popin, and Franciso and the family.

Aguilas Game

As you know, baseball is BIG here. :-) A few weeks ago we went with a big group of friends down to Santiago to watch the two rivals in the Dominican Winter League battle it out. Our favorite, the Aguilas, won (of course).

Here is Cristian with some of his friends.
Cristian and his new best friend, Estaban who is a nephew of some good friends of ours.

We were blessed by Agape Flights, the organization that brings down our mail, by a donation of everything we needed to make a delicious thanksgiving meal. It was so fun to cook my first Thanksgiving and share it with our closest friends.
