Christmas in Uganda
Christmas in Uganda is certainly a different experience with green grass and trees, birds singing and lizards running around the place. We have avocados and papaya hanging on our trees for decorations. No white Christmas for us this year!!
On Christmas Eve day we hosted our eight elders for a big breakfast and then enjoyed a spiritual program of scripture reading, carol singing and topped it off with a viewing of "It's a Wonderful Life", the best Christmas movie of all time.
Elder Bailey, Elder Winters and Elder McChesney finding goodies in their stockings.
Elders Kaseve, Ngqoyiya, Lyman, Maumbe and Ogollah are making sure they have as many treasures as the others!! The chocolate santas didn't last long...
We hope the elders felt a little bit of home with us and that their parents are comforted to know that they are well cared for.
