A Christmas to Remember

December was an incredible month for Larry and the team. He was able to hold a Christmas celebration for all 350 orphans, giving each child a gift, hot chocolate, and bread. The kids were able to play games and watch a movie as well. Once the celebration was over, the team packed and headed about 1,000 miles away from the coast to the Andes Mountains. Along with them, they brought over 1,000 gift bags with toothbrushes, toothpaste, lip balm, combs, toys, and candy. In the Andes, the team reached 17,000 feet above sea level, and the mountains still went 7,000 feet higher! After the Andes, they headed down to the Amazon where the team remained until close to New Years. In the Amazon, they stopped frequently to share the good news of Christ and the message of Christmas to some of the poorest children in the world. Seeing little children living at 16,000 feet without shoes and socks was difficult for Larry and his sons to see, but it was a Christmas that they will never forget. Getting to share God’s love to over 1,500 children was extraordinary. Thank you for making this possible for both Larry and his sons, and the children they were able to minister to.
