Christmas greetings from Larry and Jane Kies
Dear friends and family,
Our experiences this Christmas will no doubt be very different.
It makes me think that the very first Christmas must have been, in addition to the wonder of it all, an unusual and life-changing experience for many people.
We wish you a joyful and wonderful Christmas in whatever way you may celebrate the gift of Jesus - as it was then and is now as we  enjoy His presence in our lives.

Our card is attached.
Much love,

Larry and Jane Kies
