Christmas in Paraguay

We celebrated Christmas his year in our church with a music/drama presentation that included the children of the church. It was a special way to reflect on the real reason for Christmas, and get to see the kids 'strut their stuff' on stage.










They sure are cute!

Tis The Season

What words come to my mind when I think of Christmas in Paraguay besides 'hot' and 'humid'? Lets see...watermelons, pineapples, nativity sets on the streets, and millions of mangers for sale.
































Load it to the top of your car and you are good to go!

The final product!

Interesting Things I See



I ran across this orange juicer the other day and was fascinated by it.

All you have to do is dump the organges in the top basket and let the machine do the rest!

You can make some mega juice with this baby.
