Happy Sunday. I’m not going home for Xmas this year. I’ll be working as Xmas Day is not a holiday in this Muslim country (Qatar). I think I’ll venture the scary drive up to the Church and hope Jesus protects me on the way up. It’s been a hard year, the last two months particularly sucky but Jesus continues to grant me grace and protection, harming those who harm me. I have so much to be grateful for. So I’ll be home a little later (1 January), better late than never.
