Dear Friends,

A very Happy New Year to all of you who have been our faithful prayer partners and supporters in the Gospel.

There were no problems this year, no injuries and no fights!  All the teams did well and we praise the Lord for that.  The village of South Horr was at a stand still for the whole week as people came from all walks of life to watch the players play.  It was a busy time.  We shared the Gospel to more than 2000 people.  The seeds were planted and we know God was and is working in people’s hearts.  We had many more people to feed besides the players.  In all, we fed 600 people each day.  We thanked God that we had food from NDI and FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN.

In the last several devotionals, we have looked at giving and gifts from several different perspectives. Since Christmas is primarily about “gift giving” in most people’s minds, let’s pause in our Christmas shopping frenzy and look at some of the unique and timely gifts that Joseph and Mary gave to Jesus. And if the earthly parents of the Messiah gave these gifts to their Son, perhaps we should consider giving the same kinds of gifts as parents to our children.

During this special time of year, we see many beautifully wrapped presents displayed in store windows and under Christmas trees. Soon we will be buying and wrapping gifts for our family members and friends. As we have seen over and over again in this special Christmas Devotional Study, God is the greatest giver of all because of His extravagant love! He gave the greatest gift to the world when He gave His only begotten Son.

 

 

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
