Merry Christmas from The Foundation for Evangelism!
I love that during the season of Advent, we light a new candle each week.
Every time we begin with a dark, cold wreath, gradually adding to the light, building up to a glowing circle of warm light that fills our churches and hearts.
The scriptures describe God’s arrival in human form, as Jesus, in a similar way. In Isaiah 9:2 it was prophesied:
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness — on them light has shined.
And later in John 8:12 Jesus describes himself as light:
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world, Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (ESV)
This Advent and Christmas season, The Foundation staff and board celebrate what God has made possible. The wonderful achievements made and lives transformed. If you prayed for our work this year, thank you.
We are grateful for the support of our donors – both long-time and new. Your commitment to sharing the Good News makes our efforts possible. If you gave a gift to the Foundation this year, Thank you.
We are amazed at the Kingdom-building work being done by those who have received grants this year. If you applied for a grant, thank you, and may God continue to bless you and your ministry.
In the midst of Advent, as we await the coming of the Christ-child, we wish you an abundance of light, joy, and peace.
Have a joyous Christmas!
