Dear Friends & Supporters
Its Christmas once again, the time of the year when we remember the birth of Jesus as he left His heavenly throne to bring peace and joy to all mankind. Sadly, as we look around the world, and here in the UK, we see that His message of loving your neighbours has not been received or accepted by so many people and nations. The truth is, that the greatest problem in this hurting world is that of unbelief in the teachings and example of Jesus Christ.
Just imagine, if we loved our neighbours and treated everyone the same, no jealousy, greed, or unforgiveness. No looking down on the less fortunate. Jesus only ever looked down on people with compassion. He looked down on Jerusalem and wept, he looked down from the cross and said, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do” He looked down on the women caught in adultery and said, “your sins are forgiven, sin no more.” In Matthew 9:36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
You have helped us with your practical support and prayers, and it is making a huge difference around the world. Let us continue to remember and emulate His compassion this Christmas, and into 2024.
Do not be afraid to share your faith, your compassion, and in doing this you will be planting the seeds of His love. This world needs “Good News” and the best news of all is that he came to save this hurting world.
Thank you for your prayers, your aid, your shoe boxes, your financial support, your encouragement, and your faith in us.
On behalf of the people we serve.
Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year
Much love and blessings
