Dawn Prayer Meeting

While most of our family and friends back in the U.S. are attending Christmas Eve Worship Services, we headed out around 4:30am to the Christmas Dawn Service here.

The church has been holding dawn worship/prayer meetings all week from 5-6am. It's still dark outside when we arrived a little before 5am. In celebration of Christmas, the church is decorated with lights.

We found seats together. However, the church was full inside and outside (chairs outside the windows) by around 5:15. Probably around 500 people.

At the conclusion of the service around 6am, the sun is rising. It's Christmas morning. We remember that Christ left His place of honor to live and die as a man, in a sinful world, among those He loves so much.
