It may not be December 25… but it’s Christmas week here in Athens!  Over the week we’re hosting five Christmas outreach parties for refugees.  We’ve invited 130 refugees for each party – which includes a Christmas song, a Christmas puppet show, and a Christmas message (in Farsi or Arabic depending on the party)… plus a great dinner and some simple Christmas gifts!  Also, each party is being hosted by a different local Greek church.  We’re SO thankful for their partnership in these outreaches.  So far… two parties down, three to go.  Here are some pictures from yesterday’s party.  Enjoy!

Sing Along: "Joy to the World" (in Farsi)
Puppet Show: The meaning of Christmas
Christmas dinner: salad, chicken, and piles of rice!
and... of course... gifts!
