It was great to have Josh, Rachel and our grandson Tekoa with us for Christmas!
We had many visitors during Christmas! This was a group that visited from Moi Referal Hospital ( the hospital where we have recieved most of our children from) Sarah Mamlin and her husband direct the intern program there between Kenya and the US. These are all young Drs.checking out what we are doing at Tumaini! Sarah ( to the right ) backed 2000 Christmas Cookies for all the chidlren that they are connected with, Prase God, Tumaini has some of these children because the cookies are wonderful!
We exchanged gifts during our Society group gathering and we are really glad that they were not wraped!!! Mom Phyllis was presented with the traditional chicken dinner!
We had a great time while gathering with our Society group.
Here Troy & Dannon are singing with their friends the Gafner girls and our children during the visit from our Society Group.
This was our 3rd Christmas in Kenya! Hard to believe! Everyone had such a great time! We were blessed with many visitors a few days before Christmas, we greeted, talked, sang, had chai (tea with milk and surgar) and cookies, exchanged some small gifts and enjoyed ourselves greatly. Our househelp said they had never had such a wonderful Christmas! This blessed us Leister's more than anything! We prayed that all of you who help make it possible for us to be here with your support and prayers had just as wonderful a Christmas and we pray you have a " Super Blessed New Year!" Love all of you so much! The Leisters in Kenya
