“Merry Christmas” From the Banko’s

Very Merry Christmas to all of you!

Here I am with my goofy family!

My son and his wife, Abel and Honora, surprised us with their first wedding pic! You have no idea how happy I am now!

They also let us watch their wedding video for the first time and they will release it on YouTube on Monday. I make sure I share the link with you all!

Enjoy this holiday and while you do that, please remember the million displaced Ethiopians by stretching your hands! You know, I wouldn’t ask you to do this unless I’ve done it first.

The reason for the season is nothing but Jesus Christ, our precious Gift from our heavenly Father:

For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 NIV ///
