Christmas Chocolatada

This morning we had our annual Christmas party for our kids club.  It was a crazy but exciting morning! In Peru almost every school or organization has a chocolatada. A chocolatada is where you serve hot chocolate and a bread kind of like fruit cake called panetón (we serve cupcakes instead of panetón).  Also, small gifts are given to the kids.  This is one of the most exciting Saturday’s of the year!  Just seeing the kid’s faces light up opening their gifts is a gift for us.  You all have a part in this and we thank you so much!  The Lord blessed us with 35 kids and a couple of parents with their small children this morning!  Here are some pictures:
