We had a simple but special dinner to celebrate Christmas and the end of the year with our Mission and Clinic staff. Everyone took turns standing up and sharing a personal word about their year. We were blessed to hear how after some very difficult circumstances (deaths of close family members, financial burdens, etc…) each person was able to testify to God’s goodness and faithfulness in the midst of difficult circumstances. That testimony and sharing time turned out to be one of the highlights of our Christmas!
We were thrilled to participate in the wedding of Katrina and Jorge this past weekend. We have had the joy of watching Katrina grow up and become a beautiful (inside and out) woman! She graduated from our sponsorship program and then studied to become a Dental Hygienist. She now works with us at the clinic and in January will begin studying Health Administration at the University of Cartagena. The wedding was quite the event with a total wedding party of 141 people, including the Bride and Groom!!!!!!!!
