Story of Jesus told on the wards

This past Sunday the missionaries got together to share the story of Jesus's birth to the patients in the hospital. We had angels, shephards, wisemen, along with Mary, Joseph, Jesus, a trumpet trio and a narrator. As the story was being read, the groups of characters acted out their parts. We also sang Christmas carols in Pidgin as the trumpets carried the tune for us. After reading the story and praying, we split up and went back to the wards and individually prayed and shared more with the patients and their families. It was a very special time for both the patients and the missionaries, and one I hope we do again next year. (Did you see the littlest shephard with his sheep? How precious.)
