Helloooo my friends of the YEC,
first of all, it's my honor to introduce you a new friend. In addition to Cliff, who came last week, today we had Janet among us. I believe it has been our delight to share her pleasurable company in class. In my understanding, she's currently a nurse, and like all of us, she's interested in learning English to improve her language skills. Too bad we didn't have more time to get to know her better but I'm sure we'll have plenty more from now on.
According to survey in class, the YEC is scheduled to take a break on Xmas day so we
can take things easy without any rush, but we'll keep working our way through new year
day, which also falls on Sunday.
And here, let me inform you that on Xmas eve, Sat.12/24, there will be a potluck supper at
the church at 18:00. As you might already know, Xmas is a time for family reunion; but if you're coming without you family members here, just let me know and I'll see that the YEC friends are arranged together, like a family. And you might as well bring just enough food for 1~2
servings and your own flatware. By experience, potlucks at church end up with more than plenty due to generosity of people coming by; so if you're bringing nothing at all it doesn't matter much, either. (But don't you guys tell others I said so :)
It is also a church tradition to have some spectacular activities right after supper, most of which will involve biblical story plays, hymn concerts, raffles, and so on. But I'm not sure of what they have in store this year. Something we can never miss is the benediction (blessing) of the pastor before we call it a day (the end of the night). Well, doesn't all this sound appealing to you? The atmosphere of Xmas is in the air, and I can almost hear the sounds of bells in my ears. Let me end this with a Xmas carol: "today a child is born on earth..." and he came for people like you and me. Merry Xmas. HO HO HO
