Christmas Program at Diakonia

Our last Christmas program of the year was at Diakonia church. The children did the same play from Stroiesti, but it of course had its own flair! All the children in the program received a Christmas boxes.  Since we had run out of boxes from America, the church leaders bought (yes, bought–there is a charity here that sells some of their Christmas boxes from England) for the little ones in the church, including Matt. They received their boxes at the rehearsal the day before.

The kids and teens did a great job with the play. One of the young members of the church is Maria who is only 1 year old.  She played Baby Jesus and was so cute and well behaved.  Matt and his little friend, Sarah, played little lambs and followed the shepherd very well.  The teens were good sports and participated in the program with no problems.  The children’s choir ended the program with some lovely songs.

Look at all those happy faces!
