I had the opportunity to spend time with many people before Christmas. It almost felt as though Christmas already happened, even before it did. As I normally do I started the season with my Christmas party for the Polohas at my flat. I love this time every year to celebrate with them and give their kids fun gifts. Ever year we eat together, they sing for me, we make cookies, and open presents. This year was no different. It really has become a tradition for me! I am so thankful for this family!
As many of you know, the Rumbolds moved to Banska Bystrica this year. They had been living in a temporary house until a couple weeks ago. Finally, God has provided them with an amazing house here. The couple days before Christmas they had the Joneses, all the singles from Slovakia, Hungary and some Latvia JV people for a three day party. This was so much fun! We played sports together, ate, had a white elephant gift exchange, and fellowshipped. This was so good for all of us to have this time together laughing and relaxing from normal life. God has really blessed me to have such great people so close to me!
