Happy New Year! I hope you had a blessed Christmas season!
By God’s grace, we also had a wonderful Christmas season. We had organized a few Christmas programs to share the Gospel with non-Christians, and everything went well by God’s grace.
One evening, we had a program for children. We invited children from the neighborhood and friends of the children from our church. So many non-Christian children attended the program! We performed a few skits and a dance, taught them action songs, and shared the Gospel message. We also had a fun time—we played games and distributed gifts and snacks. I believe that the Word that is being planted in their hearts right now will bear fruit one day.
For three nights, we had carol singing. The people of our church gathered and visited different Christian homes, sang Christmas songs, shared a brief message, and then prayed for each family. At a few places, while we were singing carols in front of the Christians’ homes, many non-Christians who were passing by stopped to hear the songs. As a result, we had the opportunity to preach the Gospel to them. Some unbelievers came to us and shared their problems and sought our prayers.
However, there were also some who were filled with hatred and did not want us to be there. Overall, it was a blessing to share the Gospel and pray for those who came seeking prayer.
One day, we, along with some of our church members, went to the nursing home in our town. We sang Christmas songs and then shared the Gospel message with them and distributed fruit and groceries as a Christmas gift.
Every year in our town, all of the Christian churches gather together and conduct a Christmas rally. This year, we had the Christmas rally in the afternoon on December 18th. We went around the town singing and proclaiming the Gospel. It is always encouraging to join this group every year and see all of the churches sharing the Gospel.
- Pray that God would continue to use me for His glory.
- Pray for all of the people who have heard the Gospel message during this Christmas season to put their faith in Jesus.
- Pray that our church will continue to grow in the Word and in number.
- Pray for the Bible School students to continue to grow in the Word and in His knowledge.
