Merry Christmas 2013 from Hong Kong!

We celebrated the last of the Advent Sundays in a tent sheltering us from the rain. 
The church provides a welcome respite from the Hong Kong crowds... and you thought Christmas
shopping crowds were bad in your hometown??  (These are not, of course, Christmas
shoppers but just the normal Sunday afternoon crowds at the metro station!)

But we've also been surrounded by voices of peace & joy from all over the world this Christmas, as we've celebrated Christ's birth with professors and students...

 from Hong Kong,
from Cambodia

 from Germany

from Myanmar

and Wayne and I have our house full of men... our "boys" have beat the Midwestern and East coast storms and have landed safely in Hong Kong.

Merry Christmas from Hong Kong!  With love and joy in our Savior's birth,

Christa & Wayne

"The angel said, 'Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. 
This is what you’re to look for: 
a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.'
13-14 At once the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises..."

Luke chapter 2
