This day last year I was visiting our project in Bukavu, DR Congo. I blogged extensively about that trip and invite you take a look.
How I ended up spending Christmas and New Year in the Congo is a long story. One slice of that is the adoption of our two younger sons from Kinshasa. Today’s nativity set came from that capital along the Congo river.
If you’re having trouble finding the 3rd Wiseman (or is he a shepherd?), he’s standing on the pale rock to the left. His base was digested by a doggy visitor, so we stood him in the circular crevice of this stone from Denmark.
On the 4th day of Christmas, I give you a Congolese Nativity set carved in wood. Are you interested in Nativities from around the world? Check out WorldNativity.com.
