A Very Merry Christmas

 

It was an absolute blessing having my younger brother Nick, and my five-year old nephew Daimeyn fly over from way out west, and join us for our (week early) Christmas celebration. It’s been a while since so many of my family members have been together under the same roof for holiday festivities. This indeed was a very warmly welcomed visit!  It was also of great encouragement to have some of our very best friends invite us over for Christmas dinner, and create some memories to be remembered for a lifetime. I wanted to share some pictures of our time together, and of course a few photos of Coltin & I’s daughters Hailee and Trina all dressed up for Christmas Day! An additional blessing was seeing the many wonderful gifts that the disciples contributed to our Mercy Worldwide Toy Drive! Hailee and Trina had the privilege of learning the gift of giving as they accompanied Sheila and Coltin to distribute the gifts to the less fortunate.

Thanks to the many generous donations of gifts from the disciples! Coltin, Sheila, Hailee and Trina had the opportunity to be real life santa clauses! Better yet they were given the opportunity to be like Jesus!

I hope you and your loved ones also had a very Merry Christmas!

Love, Mandee M. Rohn
