Our first visit to the chapel was at daylight and we met the friendly pastor who recommended us to come back when it's dark. So we did and it was absolutely stunning. We also decided to join the Christmas eve celebration and it was the most beautiful worship I have ever witnessed. Beware of the mosquitoes, though! Bring repellent!

We stopped in to say a prayer on Christmas night. The chapel was just what you would imagine it to be; quaint, charming, and a place for reflection. It is a great place for a traveler to stop and say thanks for all of life's gifts.

My wife and I happened to be in the area the night they had Christmas Carols. What a nice event and the decorations gave me goose bumps. Very nice place.
