January 2017 Newsletter - Visitors & Volunteers


After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem… On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. –Matthew 2:1,11

Happy 2017! We kicked off the New Year with a time of celebration. January 6 is a special day in Mexico. You’ve probably heard it called “Epiphany,” but we call it “Dia de los Reyes” – Day of the Kings. This is the day we celebrate the arrival of the three kings – or Magi – to honor the newborn Christ child.

One of the traditions of this holiday is to eat “Rosca de Reyes” – King’s Cake. Hidden inside the cake is an effigy of the baby Jesus. Our kids eagerly took their pieces of cake, hoping to find the tiny, plastic figurines.

To help us celebrate the holiday, our dentist, Dr. Molina, and several of her clients came to Sonshine Hacienda. And just like the Magi brought gifts to the Christ child, our guests arrived with gifts for the children and hot chocolate, serenaded us with their musical talents, and even brought along a hot dog cart for lunch.

We are ever reminded of the love and support that comes from our community. God continues to stir the hearts of individuals, businesses, and groups to care for His children. Everyone who walks through our doors, everyone who prays for Sonshine, everyone who spreads the word about what God is doing in this place is a blessing to us and our children.
