What a joy it was to again this year, to be able to give a gift, in the name of Jesus to those who have so little. Due to the generosity of many, this year Christmas gifts were given out to gypsy children, underprivileged families, church children, teens and our children from the House of Hope. Each gift was received with joy and thanksgiving. For many, these bags full of “goodies”, were the only gift that they received. Thanks to each and every one of you that made it possible for us to make Christmas extra special for so many. God bless you!

It has been a loooong time since I have blogged. So I hope to catch you all up on what has been going on here in the past few months. I apologize for sharing this information so late, but I guess I will use the very famous saying, “better late than never!”

Christmas packs:

For the past several years the children from the House of Hope have helped to make our Christmas packs. The kids are thrilled to be part of helping others in need. All of the orphans know what it’s like to live in poverty and it wasn’t too long ago when they would have been thrilled to receive a bag full of goodies.   This year we made several different packs, one for the children from Kid’s Klub, one for the gypsy children in Batar and also several food packs. This year we decided to encourage the orphans to pay it forward. We took packs to families that our children used to live with, or a person who helped to take care of them before they arrived at the House of Hope.  As we visited them, it was a stark reminder of the poverty that each child came from, the situations they have been brought out of and how God gave them a different future since living at the House of Hope.   Thank you all who gave for our Christmas packs. A special thank you to Lebanon GMC who donated a large portion of the funds needed for this endeavor. God bless you!

cropped-Revival-Prayer-17

 

 

Sunday evening we started revival here in Talpos. I am asking you to help us pray for these special services and I am asking you to pray specifically for our youth.

There are many young people who attend church, are involved in youth activities and are respectful in God’s house, but aren’t Christians.

There are others who attend church and youth activities, but don’t seem to pay much attention during Bible studies and seem to have no interest in serving God at all.

Then there are many youth who come to our youth activities, but choose not to be attend church or be associated with God or the church at all.

I am asking you to help me prayer for these precious young people.

  1. Pray for those who are sitting on the fence that they will choose to become part of God’s family.
  2. Pray that God’s Word will soften the hearts of those who seem to be hardened.
  3. Pray that each young person will truly repent of their sins and experience full and free salvation.

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

We are in a battle for souls and we need prayer-warriors.  God hears the prayers of His people. Thank you for praying!

ChrismtasI am asking you to please pray for all of our Christmas activities this year. The past few weeks, we have been extremely busy practicing and preparing for our special Christmas events, but without God’s presence and help, all is done in vain.

There will be so many occasions during this Holiday season for people to hear of how Jesus came to save us from our sins and we want to be faithful to share this wonderful message.

Here are the different activities I am asking you to help us pray about:

1.  Christmas program with the children: On Christmas Eve, the children from Kid’s Klub will be sharing the message of the birth of Jesus through a play and several songs. Many children will have family members, who normally don’t come to church, attending this special service. Our prayer is that God will speak to their hearts this Christmas Eve.

2.  Christmas program with the youth: The day after Christmas the youth will be having their annual Christmas program. Many of their family and friends will also be attending this special service. Please pray that God will use us as we share of Emmanuel, God with us.

3.  Christmas caroling: The young people will be out caroling to the shut-ins throughout the village on December 24th and 25th.   It’s a time of encouragement for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are not able to attend our special Christmas services and also a time to minister to family members who are visiting a sick or elderly loved one during the Holidays. Please pray for us as we again have this wonderful occasion to share of God’s great love to us.

4.  Gift giving:  Because of the generosity of so many, Christmas packs will be given out to underprivileged children and families, church kids, teens and orphans. As we hand out these gifts, in the name of Jesus, it’s a wonderful opportunity to share of the ultimate gift that God gave to us so many years ago.

We realize that it is vital that we have God’s blessing and help in all of our Christmas endeavors and our desire is that God will be with us and direct us in all that we do.

We desire to celebrate Christ’s birth in a way that honors our Savior. The world needs to hear the wonderful Gospel message and Christmas is the ideal time to share that message.

Thank you so much for partnering with us in prayer!
