    It has been one of my desires to attend this event as I have heard so much about it in the past several years. To see our Mississippi Jones County students, Kayla Patterson and Austin Perkins involved in this very wholesome study and performing opportunity was beyond my expectation. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas Spectacular this past Friday night. It was truly an awesome evening of quality and class sharing of the Word about Jesus through the incredible medium of vocal music, instrumental, and dance abilities and talents of the UM students. The beautiful music of all styles was so ably & eloquently performed with such grace and diligently presented in a well organized manner that kept one engaged until the last note was sung or played. I sat there thinking how amazed the intensity continued to just rise to such a high and awesome sharing of what Christmas really is all about.
    Thank you so much Roger and all involved in the planning of this years Christmas Spectacular 2016 for such a worshipful and delightful evening. I am also interested in ordering one of the bag packages that was offered but have been unable to find the link. Please send me information as to how to order? God bless.
