A Christmas Miracle

I want to share with you our own Christmas miracle at Operación San Andres this year. Just to be clear: it’s not on the scale of the original miracle we celebrate each Christmas, but I’m sure the same generous God we worship is behind them both. In Bethlehem, God sent His Son to save sinners; this year in Collique God sent us 1,200 panettones to cheer the weary and the downcast. Let me explain.
