Christmas in January
Christmas season was extra busy this year with Lily playing the part of Scrooge’s sister, Fan, in Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma’s production of A Christmas Carol. Noah also worked the show as a crew member, filling in on spotlights as needed. Darrel’s family was able to come down and spend a couple days here at Beautiful Feet. Our family lives simply in a small space, but we also have guestrooms, a large kitchen, dining hall and other community space available for us to host friends and family when they visit. We made a weekend trip to Kansas this month and enjoyed a holiday gathering with Gail’s family. Even though we live far from our family, we’re so lucky to be close enough to drive up for a visit.
A visit from friends
Another visit we’d been really looking forward to was from some friends who’ve moved to Cambodia. We try and talk regularly with them via FaceTime, but there’s just no substitute for being together in person. If you have a real interest in international orphan care, we’d love to introduce you to this couple along with some friends who in Liberia. We are so grateful to know and work with such amazing people.
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement
One last thing to mention from January is that Gail has begun serving with the OKC Perspectives coordinating team as a grader. This class is a great on-ramp into missions thinking and involvement. It provides a solid foundation, a broad view and ways for anyone to begin to personally orient their lives toward the growing kingdom of God in all creation.
