December is a special time for Emmanuel. The children have had a phenomenal time sharing songs, hugs and smiles with the entire community. Monica’s and Laurie’s classes shared a sweet Bible verse and song with their friends at Alpine and Princeton Place. The children beamed as they passed out treats and hugs to the residents there.
Deby’s class enjoyed a trip to the Twin City Ballet to see Buddy the Elf. You could tell by all the giggles and wiggles the children loved every minute of it.
