Before I continue with Mexico reports I have one more thing to post! [smile]

Last night we went Christmas caroling with our Bright Lights group. It seems like every year the same thing happens to me: I don’t really feel like going beforehand and then afterward I am SO GLAD we did! I wish we could carol to every house in our town.

So … I thought I could at least post about it, in hopes that it might encourage some of you to go caroling this year (if you weren’t already planning on it)!

It was so special to see some people really touched. One lady couldn’t even talk to us because she was crying so much. Other couples seemed like they didn’t want us to leave.

I was so proud of our girls for their enthusiasm, cheerfulness, and energetic singing!

We gave each house with a plate of cookies, tract(s), and the Christmas story printed out from the Bible.

Many of the Christmas carols are like a “singing tract” because of the great messages they contain. “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing” is one of the best so we tried to sing that one at many houses.

After Sarah’s lesson on “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you,” we concluded with a Christmas tea, activities, and showed them this short video by our friend, Sam Wilson.

  1. you all are amazing! i am sure the neighbors were indeed blessed, not only by your beautiful voices and the number of girls caroling, but also by your love and compassion. praying for you and all your ministries this season!

  2. Thanks for sharing, Grace! We took our Bright Lights group caroling last year at a trailer park nearby the church where we meet. Each girl brought some cookies, and we made up cookie plates and decorated Christmas card tracts to hand out at each home. Since we there were so many of us we divided up into two groups so that we could carol at twice as many homes in the hour that we had. The girls were so enthusiastic and the Lord really blessed our time of ministry together.

    I’m looking forward to hearing more about your Mexico trip!

  3. Wow, Grace. You always amaze me with your stories of witnessing + testimonies. And it always makes me wonder when I will start witnessing. The mere idea terrifies me!
