On Christy and the Christmas Caroling: A lovely end to our devotions

I have been so entranced by the experience of the core activities in Lisa's home this week that I have forgotten to take pictures. Sunday afternoon it was the junior youth group. Jardana's family pastor and his wife came to visit. Jessica, Elijah and Tita attended with Matt also there to take it all in. Thursday Kim, Gianna, Trejon and Gilmar came for Book 1, and made great progress.  Matt and Christy had started a new job, and weren't able to come that night, but there were there Friday night for devotions.
It was just the three of us, as Lisa was away. We celebrated the fact that they are both working together at the same factory now. We prayed. For two hours we prayed.
It was almost 11 o'clock when we heard music. Where was it coming from? The neighbors? No, outside. What was it? Christmas carols. "Do you have your camera?" Christy asked.
I managed to shoot a few pictures and a video, as Matt and Christy stepped outside to listen. Christy was radiant. She had never heard carolers live and in person, she said. We cleaned up a bit, locked up, and headed home for the night, thrilled with our evening. -gw
