On Thursday, I was at Wingard Home speaking with Charlotte Wingard about their upcoming Christmas Festival for needy children. Every year, the Wingards put on a huge Christmas party complete with games, a puppet show, sweets, presents, and a living nativity scene. Charlotte said that the nativity scene is always one of the biggest highlights of the occasion and really helps the kids, many of them unchurched, understand the true meaning of Christmas...the birth of Jesus and God's great love for the world and for them. They let the children even get in the nativity scene and have their photo taken. The kids LOVE this!

Here's where you come in.

At the last minute, a problem came up and the group who was going to do the nativity scene had to pull out. Yesterday, another church agreed to loan their costumes but we need people to WEAR the costumes! We need you, your kids, your neighbors, your youth come and stand there wearing Biblical costumes. But more than just standing there, you're helping some special children experience God's gift this Christmas season.

If you can be one of the nativity scene figures, PLEASE contact me ASAP! This is something individuals can do or their whole family. To be honest, I had originally told Charlotte on Thursday that if she'd find the costumes, my family would fill them.
Well now we can't because my husband Jim and I are both sick.

The Wingard Christmas Festival is today from 3 to 6 at the Trade Mart located at the fairgrounds. You'd need to be there by around 2:00.

Thank you so much!


P.S. Also, would you please pray that we'll find our Mary, Joseph, angels, shepherds, and wisemen?
