Dear Faithful Prayer Partners,
"When the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son." The Prophets declared it; the Angels sang about it; the Shepherds rejoiced because of it; and you and I as the redeemed can celebrate this great event. Christmas is generally a time of rejoicing with and blessing of one another. Yet, there are those less fortunate. There are some who are grieving the lost of loved ones; the lost of close friends; the lost of land and houses; and for some the lost of national identity because of war, persecution and oppressive regimes. Let us remember them in prayer today. Just a few moments ago our RTO Bangkok Office Staff spent time in prayer for you. We asked God to bless you and show you His divine favor this season.
Furthermore, let us remember today that our identity is in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the giver of life, hope and a blessed eternal future. I pondered in my heart what to write to you at this time. My heart is full of thanksgiving for and to you. Many of you have blessed us this past year and have facilitated us staying on the mission field. Your grace, mercy, love and kindness have not gone unnoticed by our Sovereign Lord.
I would like to share with you one of the best Christmas Power Point Presentations that I have ever received. It is a little long but there is so much meaning in it. It will cause you to stop, re-evaluate who you are in the bigger scheme of things. Please see the attachment below.
I would like to give credit to Charles Partridge and Greg O'Brien courtesy of Birdman Productions for such a beautiful job and lovely music.
Merry Christmas and may you and your family be blessed this wonderful time of the year.
Yours in Christ's service,
On behalf of all of our RTO Staff,
Vaden and Joyce Williams
