This year we are feeling especially grateful knowing we are connected to friends and family all the way from our little town Tyner, Indiana, to the giant city of Manila. Cathy and I get to share Christmas joy with people in Texas, Michigan, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon and other US states as well as countries around the world. As I type this in cold, cloudy, rainy Tyner, I get to join in Spirit at least with people on the warm, beautiful islands of Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic in celebrating Jesus’ birth.
Here are a few pictures from our Christmas in Tyner celebration and an online gathering of World Relief friends in the Philippines, US, Vietnam, the UK, and Canada. It is wonderful to be a part of such groups!
