A couple of weeks ago Seth and I took Halle and two of her cousins to the "Journey through Bethlehem" at Forest Hill Christian Church in Oklahoma City. Apparently they do this every year and the turn out is huge! When we arrived we had to walk what seemed like a mile to get to the end of the line. After waiting in line for well over an hour we began the journey. It was definitely worth the wait. The journey started in Nazareth and ended in Bethlehem with Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus. We had guides that performed skits and role played the entire time.
Waiting in line
Everyone ended up in the sanctuary at some point, where skits were performed, songs were sang, and films were shown.
It was finally our turn, everyone was so excited!
The kids had such a wonderful time! They were reminded of the true meaning of Christmas, Jesus Christ our Savior was born!
