We were fortunate enough to participate in A Night in Bethlehem a truly amazing Christmas event that was held at a local church. Our family was able to experience Bethlehem. I was amazed at how much of an impression this made on Emily. She talked about it for days telling everyone that she went to Bethlehem and saw Baby Jesus!
When we entered we told the census takers who we were, where we came from, how we travelled to Bethlehem (we did by donkey!) and how many camels and donkeys we owned.
Our names were written on scrolls with quills.
Emily helped make rope.
Emily and Juliette had sandals made.
They ground spices…
…and made mosaics.
There were tax collectors, beggars and even a real donkey.

**I was not compensated by this company in any way, I just wanted to share this amazing outreach program with others so they could experience the same thing that we did!
