Feliz Navidad, or Merry Christmas!
We are doing well down here in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It doesn’t feel as much like Christmas because it’s hot instead of cold and there aren’t as many lights on homes, decorations up, etc. But we are making the most of it and enjoying this time. We are so thankful to be celebrating our first Christmas with an extra addition to our family! Andrew is growing fast, and doing very well.
We (Derek and Audrey) have now celebrated Christmas in 4 different countries as a married couple (5 ½ years). We’ve lived in the USA, Costa Rica, Panama and now Argentina for Christmas.
We’re deciding on what all we want our family traditions to be. One is that we made our 2nd annual gingerbread house a few days ago. This year we had to make the gingerbread cookie part from scratch, but we found all the ingredients necessary, and it went well.
Mostly we are thankful for the real reason for Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ. Without this we would be nothing. It’s only by God’s grace and mercy that we are saved, and we can never be more grateful for anything in our lives. We’re reminded to remember, and share the real reason for Christmas with others around us.
Thank you for praying for us as we are ministering down here in Argentina. Let us know how you are doing if you get a chance.
Derek, Audrey and Andrew Tucker
