Week of December 16, 2018

Santa's helper came to the village hall last week. He was greeted with smiles and happy faces as kids gathered around to share their stories and get a hug. This is a scene that has been a tradition in Birchwood for over 60 years and it never gets old. 
Recently, I had the opportunity to join a mission trip to Uganda. We went to help build housing but we came away so much richer from the love and joy of the Ugandan people, especially the kids.
The joy of these children is the spirit of our future. Here are pictures of that spirit here and there.
I wish you all a safe and joyous holidays.
