Christmas gifts

Each year, members of our congregation get special gifts for the poor children of San Antonio Tlayacapan who are fed through Operation Compassion.

Here’s Carla’s report of the event:

We had the kids sit down, sang a few songs, then Santa came and told them in Spanish that we are celebrating Jesus’ birth. We gave them a bolsa of candy —┬áthe “elves” of La Ola handed those out. And then the families came forward to receive their gifts.034 (1024x694)

Santa gets the kids' attention -- but a few are focused on the bags of presents.
