This Christmas was very special for a lot of us here in Lima. Since Christmas fell on a Sunday this year, we decided to change service around to a memorable time spent together as a family in Christ over pancake breakfast, worship, and the Word of God. We started out the morning by eating a feast full of pancakes, bacon, eggs, fruit, coffee and juice as we sat around tables talking about how we had celebrated the night before. Then Pastor Rick brought all the children forward to tell them about the true meaning of Christmas in a way they could understand and participate in. Then we opened the Bible and read the Christmas story together as Pastor Rick shared a short teaching. Even though it was tough for some people to come out because of family things and the fact that in Peru, they celebrate Christmas starting at midnight on Christmas eve, we had a larger than expected group at both campuses. It was busy, but it was a very blessed day celebrating the real reason for Christmas and adoring the one who came to save us.
