Christmas Service in Our Home

This last Sunday we had our weekly gathering inside our home, as we were expecting a really small turnout with most of the students gone now that finals are over; however, to our surprise we had about 35 people in our living room celebrating the birth of Jesus together!

It was so sweet having a Christmas service where we sang CHRIST-mas songs together, read the Christmas story out of our children's book, discussed the humble gift it was for Jesus to come to earth, and ate dinner together as a family.  We also sung 'The 12 days of Christmas' and had a comical white elephant gift exchange too!

Ah, God is so good!  This has been one of the best quarters Holly and I can remember in our 8 years in IV...we are stunned at the goodness of God in the land of Isla Vista and are living in great expectation for all God is going to do in 2010.
