Seth…thanks for another reminder of what the Advent season is all about. Let’s talk after the holidays. Shalom brother…
Pastor Anand had the opportunity to talk to the group as many were asking where these things came from. He answered and told them, “God,” and many were shocked as they are Hindu and believe God is dead.
“How did God give these things?” they asked.
“I told them God was NOT dead that he was using his friends in the US to help them and to give the money to buy those things because of his great love for them.”
He went on, “So many people are praying for you. Jesus gave you these things through the Americans.”
They were so surprised by this. “REALLY?! Jesus gave this to us?”
“I was able to talk to them about what Jesus has done for them and many received Jesus. They were so happy and full of appreciation.”
In caring for my mother…she said to me again today, “you are so good to me, why are you so good to me…” and it is the love of Christ.
Here in Boone, we’ve heard similar reports from our Samaritan’s Purse medical teams as they return from fighting cholera in Haiti.
O LORD, may “…Thy kingdom come on earth, as it is in heaven,” since you have become flesh and dwelt among us.
In my son and his girlfriend’s home, two of the most precious people in the world to me. They once knew Him…but it has been a long time since they have felt His embrace. I will be His embrace for them this Christmas weekend.
Merry Christmas, Seth!
Blessings to you and your entire family!
