Christmas Wedding in Lima de Abajo

For the past two years, I have been invited by George and Donna Steensma to join them on their annual clothing giveaway in the small town of Lima de Abajo, Nayarit, Mexico. For me, it is one of the highlights of the entire year.

The giveaway ended around 5:15pm on Saturday, December 20 (see link below for full story), and our timing couldn’t have been more perfect. We finished loading the truck with tables and empty suitcases just in time to watch this wedding party walk towards the church across the street. Love is certainly in the air this holiday season.

Wishing you all a blessed Christmas!
