Christmas Visitors

What a joy it has been for us to have visitors from Canada over Christmas.  My second cousin Donald and his family arrived from Calgary on Dec. 18th.  When they left  the temperature was -32 C and they're now baking in +32 C degree temperatures. 

 Quite a shock to the system especially as Don and the boys have been working outside putting up gutters.  It's perhaps the first time I've ever seen these guys slow down.

  As well as meeting and greeting lots of folks we've enjoyed showing them around New Hope and taking them out to the village to visit our sponsor child and his family.

  I loved their ingenuity as they made a basketball hoop out of an old bicycle tire for Sam and his family to play with.  They've also enjoyed taking on some of the kids here in some friendly basketball games.

We put the boys to work peeling matoke for a special meal with our family group.

Don and Joanne have enjoyed having their coffee outside in our tropical garden.  Note the Tim Horton's coffee mug bought at our local market in Kiwoko.

 Christmas Day they joined in our colourful church service complete with our own little Rudolph and beautifully colourful gomesis.
It has truly been a fabulous gift to have them with us.
