Merry Christmas

As we reflect on the "season" before us, we must see beyond the season and Thank God for the REASON. Today, as we greeted the "Winter Solstice," we experienced the shortest day and longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. As the light has been waning, so now the light will shine longer each day. Winter solstice 2018 coincides with a full moon, a meteor shower and some amazing weather. But we must know that the most amazing "HEAVENLY DISPLAY" is not the stars, but His Son. Because of His great LOVE for us, God sent His Son Jesus, from heaven to earth, to set us free.


The birth of Jesus was far more than a birthday. It was the Incarnation. It was the fulfillment of God's promise that HE would send the LIGHT of the world to reveal His plan to save us all. His light shines through your darkest nights and illuminates your most devastating days. HE who had no beginning and has no end took on a beginning, knowing His end. We praise God for His sacrifice, the miracles that followed and your partnership to send us around the world to bring that LIGHT to the darkest corners of the globe.
THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH US!

All our love, from our family to yours!

Father, guide our hearts
to you HEART during
this season of HOPE!

E-Votion
JESUS . . . What a gift
"Thanks be to God for His
indescribable gift!" 2 Cor 9:15

 

 

In Corinthians, Paul talks about the gifts they are collecting to meet the needs of the poor. He commends their eagerness to give. But as he reflects on the spirit of giving, His attention is suddenly diverted from temporal needs to the most important gift.

His focus turns to heaven as he considers the gift of God's own Son. Unable to describe the raw wonder of that incredible gift, in verse 15, he can only say "Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift." The beauty is, God didn't just send a gift, He came Himself.


Christmas 2018 is filled with miracles because of your partnership in prayer and giving. You have sent us to 5 continents in 2018 and lives are still touched as we shared the gift of love God sent in a manger. The singular indescribable promise, in the light of that Holy Child and Risen King, is as powerful today as the day it was promised.

God's gift was first personal, then practical, then powerful. PERSONAL because He came for you, PRACTICAL because He meets you right where you are and POWERFUL because there is no need He cannot meet.
Our prayer is that you will experience ALL that Jesus came to give us as you serve Him. Merry Christmas!

Again I say
unto you,
that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done
for them of
my Father which is in heaven.




Our first focus must be to stop and give thanks to God for HIS amazing love this Christmas season.
JESUS . . . What a gift "Thanks be to God for His
indescribable gift!" 2 Cor 9:15

Most of all, during this Christmas season, let us pray for something that cannot be measured in presents, the manifestation of God’s presence. We are praying for God’s blessing on you, your family, your work, lives, and ministries as we wind up 2018 and move forward, Lord willing, into 2019.

We pray that you will experience God’s richest blessings, the release of His promise, and the direction for your purpose. Please feel free to send us your prayer requests. We long to stand with you for your lives as you have stood with us for so many lives around the world.


PLEASE PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER JOINING US IN SOME MANNER FOR OUR 40 DAYS OF PRAYER & FASTING STARTING JAN 1

Sign Up Here

 

1) DIRECTION FOR 2019
God has already begun to lay out an ambitious tapestry of opportunity for us in 2019. As you can see from the schedule above, we are praying that God will open the right doors, lead us to the right places, and help us to minister in boldness and power.

As you pray for our itinerary for 2019, please send us your needs so that we can join to pray for direction for you

 

2) LOST LOVED ONES

So many people close to us, close to our ministry, and close to those we treasure have lost loved ones in this past year. The holiday season can be a very difficult time. Let us pray that God comforts their hearts. If you have lost someone, our prayer is that the Father will be with you as the God of all comfort during this holiday season. God understands our need. Jesus knows our pain.


3) FOR THE LOST

We pray this HOLIDAY season finds you in the center of God’s blessing. Do not forget, to whom much is given, much is required. Let us remember those who are victims to addiction, human trafficking, and sin around the earth, that desperately need the light that only Jesus Christ can bring. Let us pray for open doors for the gospel for Global Teen Challenge around the world.


4) EARTHQUAKE, FIRE, HURRICANE & STORM VICTIMS

Please pray for the tens of thousands of people who have experienced such upheaval and loss through the recent storms, tornadoes and hurricanes throughout 2018.

 

5) AFRICA-M*SS*ON SOS

The M*SS*on SOS gear did not make it out of Rwanda after the festival in July. At the border, as the truck awaited clearance, a vehicle lost its brakes crashing into our truck and eight other vehicles.

There was a huge explosion, a blazing inferno and the containers, the entire stage, lighting, and sound equipment were consumed. All of the festival gear valued at approximately US$1.5 million has been lost and the system must be reconfigured in time for the June outreach in Tanzania.

 

A truck fire will not stop momentum, but they need your prayers and as the Lord leads -- financial help..
