Now THAT was FUN! this is Florida, right?
Well, you'd never know it by the way we've had to dress at the Thursday and Friday night's performances of "The First Noel" at FBC, Leesburg. Friday's night's temps were at about 40 degrees, with a pretty strong wind blowing in from the NE, which was at our backs......brrrrrr!!

God bless everyone who has worked so hard to pull of such a phenomenal event, all to the glory of God!
We have been graciously fed in the fellowship hall each night, thanks to Deb and her crew. And because these temps have been so frigid, the volunteers at the Men's Center prepared hot chocolate, hot tea, cider and coffee, to warm us between shows.

When arriving, one is taken on a tour through Bethlehem, where the people of the town present the good news of the King who has been born. Afterwards, a concert telling the story of Jesus from his birth to his resurrection is presented by worship members, led by Stephen Wolgamott.

Aren't they PRECIOUS???? I got to hold the little brown one, and could kick myself in the you know what, for not having my camera with me at the time!

Some of the worship team members, who were faithful and brave to endure the cold temps, to bring the story of the birth of our Lord to the city of Leesburg.....
Can't wait until next year!!! :)
