Joulu Nairobissa / Christmas at Nairobi
Kenya Finns provided a traditional Finnish Christmas lunch for all Finns in Nairobi. Many have come to Kenya to work for Christian organization, or to adopt a Kenyan baby. The ambassador welcomed everybody.
Place for Christmas lunch was the residence of ambassador of Finland. So one part of the most beautiful Finland is located to Nairobi.
Most beautiful Christmas songs-afternoon were organized by Arkkila´s. Also people from Chrismas lunch -happening were joining. Together we sang of the most precious gift of Christmas- Jesus, the savior.
Christmas tree reminds us from the cross. Jesus was born into the world in order to redeem our sins - the sin of whole world. Into the Christmas joy associates also the sadness of the Eastern and finally the joy of resurrection.
The message of Christmas was proclaimed also at Uhuru highway church both on Christmas eve and Christmas day. The sin came to the world through Adam and in Jesus it became fully redeemed. From this we may celebrate every day.
