This past weekend we had the privilege of sharing our Christmas program with our hometown community of Seward, Nebraska. It was a special time, as many of the people in the crowd have invested in our lives over the 33 years we've lived in Seward county. They've watched the children grow up. Cheered our first attempts at music. And encouraged our family in numerous ways.
It was such a joy to celebrate Christmas at home.
Kori captured a few pictures from the event. We brought all the costumes, equipment, and props. What a great evening!
It's Branson tradition to share a patriotic tribute.
This year we're making these lovely scarves available after our concerts. They are sewn by Christian widows oversees as a means of support for them and their children. And the scarves are simply beautiful! What girl doesn't need an extra scarf in her closet?!
The grand finale of the show - Joy to the World!
And afterwards, Kori documented a Wissmann semi-tradition. Yes, the 'crash' after the concert. It was around midnight before we were wrapped up at the auditorium and back home again. And we were ravenously hungry!! Who doesn't like cold cereal for a midnight snack?
But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You."
