Life is merrily busy here at the Maxwell household. I finished Christmas Comes to Sunflower, and we’re enjoying Christmas activities intertwined into life. I’ll share about Sunday evening’s caroling soon!
Speaking of Christmas Comes to Sunflower, it’s exciting for me to send it to families as they complete the project. I marvel at the Lord’s goodness.
Walk Through Bethlehem was a great success. Between Friday and Saturday evenings, Joseph, John, Anna, Jesse, and Mary ran through their set of music and testimonies four times. It was delightful to see the joy the music brought to people. I noticed each evening a child in the play area, instead of playing with the toys, hung on the back of a nearby chair to listen to the music. It was a sweet moment. A family, who came to a conference two years ago when they were in the States from Australia, surprised us and showed up. They’re back in the States and decided to come to WTB after reading the blog post and being only an hour away. It was a joy to talk with them.
I especially appreciate the hours of time my brothers and sisters have invested in music practice. They diligently worked on arranging their pieces and spent hours practicing. We have one more music event coming up, which I’ll share about next week.
Merry Christmas from cold Kansas!
