Kelly shared with our friends from El Tomate about a memory from his childhood. He told everyone that his late grandfather was a Church of God pastor and that the church his grandfather pastored had a custom of giving a lunch bag filled with a couple of pieces of fruit and candy to the people that attended the Christmas service at church.
The tradition lives on with Kelly in Honduras. Instead of a plain white bag, we asked the children and women to decorate the bags with images of their choice. In all, they decorated approximately 90 bags. Pastor Luis, Evelyn, Sammy, Nuvia, and Suyapa helped us to fill the bags with fruit and candy on Sunday before church.
I think we have discovered a few artists right here in El Tomate.
