This holiday season has been different from those in years past, but different is not always bad.   I would say in this case it has actually been humbling.   You see there are no lights, tree, or ornament, no oversized overpirced yard decorations, no last minute shopping or famous must have item, it has been about survival.   This is what I would believe is the hardest time of year, there are no crops, work is scarce and the weather is wet and chilled.   This means that bellies are hungry, money is scarce and loved ones are sick.   Through all that add in the hopelessness of a life without Christ and the world seems pretty dark. 

This month we have had the opportuntiy to share the love of Christ with several people.    Three of those are small children that come almost daily to our home to hear the stories from the Bible and learn of a God who loves them.   There father is gone and their mother works 7 days a week for 12 hours each day, they are so excited about this baby that was sent here so humbly in a not so different inviornment than themselves, they can relate to no one having room.   Please join us in praying for them and for the people of La Moskitia that they too will find peace through Christ.
