There were about 15 of them all together. These teens were beamimg from ear to ear! They were almost more excited then my kids! They were carrying rather large presents and were so excited to say who the present they were holding was for. They put the presents under the tree and took turns asking each other questions. Then they sang jingle bells, up on the house top, and Rudolph With the kids. The spirit that these teens brought was so strong and seeing the light of Christmas not only thru my kids eyes but thru the eyes of these teens because of my kids was priceless and something I will never forget. I now know that it wasn't us that needed this great act of service. It was those teens and leaders that needed it and I'm so glad that my kids got to help with that. Aslo my kids got to see that complete strangers would travel an hour out of their way to come help them and brighten their day! I was fighting back tears the whole time and didn't get any pictures of them. I wish I had! As soon as they left we had a birthday party to go to so we piled up in the car and went to that. As soon as we got home They were asking if they could open the presents, I said they could each open one and before I knew it they were all open!!

I'm again so grateful for this light the world service project and for the amazing teens so freely gave to my kids and taught them the true meaning of Christmas and that is to be Christ like and Give.
