This year on Christmas Eve we had two parties to celebrate Christmas and enjoy a Christmas meal with our friends at the Lighthouse Project. It has become our tradition to stay open on December 24th which is the day that Christmas is celebrated in El Salvador. For many of those we serve, we are the only family that they have, and our center is the only place they go for a Christmas celebration.
We had a great time giving special recognition to those members of our programs that have stepped up to serve this year, Jon shared a Christmas message, we handed out Christmas gifts, and enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner. Our two seatings were a success, and our whole family had a great time serving together.
Thank you so much to all of our donors, and our volunteers. It took a team to get gifts for everyone, wrap them, serve Christmas dinner, do set-up and clean up, and spend time praying for the events to be a success. We couldn’t do any of it without our national and international team of supporters. Thank you so much for helping us to celebrate Christmas for those on the streets of San Salvador!
