December is here!

We're on the final countdown to home now! Very excited about our Christmas holidays. To mark the first day of December, after a day full of classes (it's not a holiday here, you know!), our team are going to watch 'Elf' and drink mulled grape juice.

As we participate in Advent celebrations this year, we are seeking to remind ourselves of its essential messages - messages of joy, hope, expectancy, peace. We are praying that we will embody these characteristics, both here and at home. We are so thankful for the prompt of Advent to reconsider the unchanging love of Jesus that is independent of culture, comfort and context. We are challenged about how we might follow His example of love each day.
