On January 7, 2021, volunteers from the Christian Volunteer League in Cheboksary, Chuvashia, held an unusual Christmas celebration for children from a rehabilitation center: outdoors and using a “time machine”! The kids took a trip to the past, spending time in the Middle Ages and in 1st-century Bethlehem. And the nonvirtual presents brought the kids back to the present! Thank you all who helped raise the funds! Special thanks from all our hearts to the dedicated and cold-resistant volunteers Sergei Malov, Ksenia Grigoryeva, Ilya Dubrovski, Semyon Ivanov, Oleg Yelkin, and Anna Vorobyova!
