Our Christmases

Merry Christmas everyone. We are having 3 Christmas celebrations up here. We celebrated Christmas with Cindy and Julie Blick from our old church in Australia (when i was a youth pastor 12 years ago). they were here for 4 days and have left now. They hope to be back here in Orkney next summer.

Christmas 2. A quiet family Christmas – the big Turkey, Bing, crackers, tree, etc. Tomorrow night is the carol service for the city of Stromness, and I have created the video loop for it.

Christmas 3. Derek and Amy Chapman and their dog will be coming up from Belgium in a weeks time for our final Christmas.

So we are finishing off the year quietly. Kids are off school now. I am working on video and the production of a multimedia book that outlines the past 10 years of emerging church history.

A little bit of snow fell today. We are all well. Hope everyone out there has a GREAT CHRISTMAS.

    Hi Andrew
    and Happy Christmas to you and the family from Seattle. Though I missed yours, I’m hoping to get over your way sometime soon for another celebration at the Jones’ household. Perhaps a March St. Patrick’s Day event would be in order. Maybe we should enjoy Christmas first and then see . . .

    Hi Andrew and Family!
    I want to wish you all a belated merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Glad to know you all are doing well in Orkney.
    I have been trying to write you at your hotmail account, but it doesn’t seem to be working. Could you send me a message at the above address to try and establish contact? Thanks.
