During Christmas I had too much to blog about, and didn't have time to squeeze this post in, some I'm posting it now. =D
~Before Christmas, our girls violin teacher Adriana and her husband had us over for a yummy dinner. We gave them some chocolates and a Richard Clayderman CD, and they gave our children nice gifts too. We are sooo happy with the violin teacher that God has given our girls.~Kimberly and Sarah helping Adriana, "make" dessert for our meal.
Later that day we did this outing too. There is an ACE school above one of our churches here and so our family decided to take some of our students in that school on a little outing during their Christmas break. They rarely get to come off of the mountain where they live, so this was an exciting time for them. 8 students were able to come with us for this outing. We took them downtown Bogota to see the Christmas lights in a park, bought them supper, and then bought them each one of those fun lighted balls. They really seemed to enjoy the time, and so did we. By the time we took them home and got home ourselves it was after 11:00 PM, and this pregnant lady was ready to go to bed. =D

~The hot-dog stand where some of our group got their supper. Our choices were pizza, hamburgers and hot-dogs, and we each got to chose what sounded best to us.
Would you please help us pray for the students from this ACE school? They live in homes that are pitiful, and run the streets with most of their parents not caring where they are, nor what time they come home! Jimmy and his wife Farly teach at the ACE school here. These students are not easy to teach, because of their undisciplined home life, but Jimmy and Farly are doing a GREAT job. Only God can help Jimmy and Farly and us to touch their lives! Please pray that God will help us as we try to love them to HIM. Thanks for your prayers...we couldn't be here without them!~
