Här kommer årets sista brev från Alice.
Dear Swedish Parents,
Since, the Christmas is fast approaching we think that you all are busy in Christmas shopping.
Here the winter has already started. Last year it was very cold and this year due to low rain fall we have little cooling. Since we live in a small village surrounded by the hills we have good winter wheather here.
We never see the snow and we have heard that Sweden will be covered with snow during christmas. How wonderful it is to see that. we have 26 degrees celecuis heat now in our home town. It is hot during the day and cool in the night time.
The children participated in the sports organised by diabled department on the 3rd of Dec and won many praises. The girls and boys got first and second place in the tri-cycle events. Some of the Tri-cycles got damaged in the sports and now they are getting repaired. Few children stood in the second place in the Khabhadi sport. This sport is the our state game. It is a team sport and competition will be between to teams. The sport goes like this, one team will stay in a court and one person will enter into the other court saying Kabhadi…Khabhadi and try to touch the other group persons. It is very interesting to watch and it involves with lot of energy and josh.
We have errected a star in the Childhome and also Christmas tree. On the 24th night we all will go to Church. We even did the Christmas carols singing many songs. We errected a big 5 feet Star.
We all are so eited to ssee Sam and family. Thankyou for all the lovable and prayerful support you have been extending to us. We pray that the Lord will give you a jous Christmas and a happy new year to you all. We wish you all a Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
