IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE ALREADY!! It seems that the year has just gone by so fast, yet so many things are still on our To-Do lis.
December is not just the end of the year, but it’s the month to get ready for the new beginning, getting ready to step into the New Year! Are you ready? In our every day busyness, we easily get distracted by whatever we are doing and forget the most import an thing of Christmas. I hope, each of us will have time to meditate on the true and real meaning of this big celebration that we all preparing.
It is all about CHRIST. He is the reason of this season, the light that we need to step into 2012, the lamp that shines our path, the one and only guidance we need, the Savior who can save our souls, the reason we live.
Many things have happened in our life, and we are so thankful that with the strength, grace, mercy and favor from God through our Lord Jesus Christ, we are enable to get through all the challenges in 2011. He is faithful and everlasting God!
In September 2011, we had our first interview through Skype call with Wycliffe Recruiter Personnel. Later in October 2011, we started our Application progress and it is still in the progress now. If accepted, then we will go to the Wycliffe HQ office in Orlando, FL, for the 2 weeks – EQUIP Camp in April 2012. Please do pray for this process that we are going through, pray for God’s provision and help. We will give you more updates on this process later.
For about 10 months the local church that we have been going didn’t have a pastor. Struggling in frustration but all trust the Lord to send the right one to pastor and disciple His own people at Grace Baptist Church, Minford. God truly worked in each member’s heart while waiting for His answer. Last month, we received God’s answer! He sent Rob McKinney to be our new Pastor. Last week, God provided them a house just couple houses away from the church. This is an amazing answer and miracle for us. They will move into their new house on December 28th and we will have the first Sunday Service together on January 1, 2012! What a wonderful way to start the year!
We would like to THANK YOU ALL for all your supports for our church, family and ministry. Thank you so much for being wonderful friends and family to us. We give thanks to God because of you!
We hope you all will have a wonderful Christmas, to celebrate the greatest love that our God have shown to the world by sending his very own Son, to be the light in this world, to be the Savior who needed by every one of us, and to be the King of our lives.
Yes, only Jesus Christ is the reason of this Seasons!
“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Fater, Prince of Peace.
…will be caled holy – the Sond of God.
…and you shall call him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.
…and they shall call his name Immanuel,”
(Isaiah 9:6; Luke 1:35b; Matthew 2:31, 23)
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012
