Every year we have a church Christmas picnic and this year was no exception. We invited all our friends and families to the Porter's house where we had a bbq, swam and played games. This year we gave out candy canes that told the story of Christ. Everyone enjoyed the little treat as well as the reason that the candy cane was made. If you have never heard the story look it up on the internet, it is a great illustration. We enjoyed the time that we got to spend with our church family and their friends. We missed the year before as we were on furlough so it was great to enjoy the tradition again. Please pray for all the new people that we met that day and for their interest in our church family and the reason why we celebrate Christmas in the beginning.
