On 12/04 there was a Christmas Banquet for the staff members, interns, board members and all the village people who were invited. Students only could participate if they were serving. And so did I. And actually we had fun!
We ate the same delicious food - well not with them, but the same, we could listen to the sing team and sing the common Christmas carols. And after supper till the end - when we had our free time - we also could join the people at the tables and talk with them. Well, one of the board members attends my church so I sat to him and his wife.
