Canote E-Notes 12/15/11

"While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 
and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." ~ Luke 2:6-7

Feliz Navidad!

We sure hope you and your family are having as much fun celebrating this holiday season as we are!  Granted, it's the busiest time of year... but, it's also our favorite time of year.  We've already enjoyed Christmas caroling with the children's ministry kiddos at our home church, lots of Christmas shopping, and several holiday parties and get-togethers including plenty of tasty treats!  As always, we try hard to keep at the forefront, the true REASON FOR THE SEASON.

Christmas Music Ministry
This last weekend included two Christmas programs with a chance to make lots of Christmas music:  Canote Family style.  This year's music included old standards, bluegrass and country styles, and even a jazzy "White Christmas" with dad and the boys.  We'll work on getting some video up on our YouTube Channel ASAP.

New Web Site
After months of planning, design, and review our Launch Team at YUGO Ministries was just recently able to take the new web site live:  Check it out!  It's brand new and super fresh!  It even includes a mobile version.  Click here for information about joining our family in Acuña, Mexico in 2012.

In the midst of all the hubbub of this busy holiday season, Chris and the boys are also finalizing the logistics and travel plans for their annual New Year's Outreach with YUGO.  They will be leaving on Christmas Day flying out of St. Louis and into San Diego late in the day.  The following day, after picking up a big van and trailer, stocking up on supplies, etc. they will be heading south of the border for a week of Team Ministry in Mexicali, Mexico.  They will host a large ministry team from Caledonia, Michigan.  Look for updates from Chris while they are on that trip.
