Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
As we look back on another year, we realize we have so much to be thankful for! God has faithfully met our needs through all of you. We're so grateful for your generosity, your prayers, and for your love for us and for the Japanese people. Thank you all so much!! May God richly bless you this Christmas!
Well, we are excited for Christmas! Emily comes home on Dec. 19th! As much as we are looking forward to being together again as a family, we realize that Christmas is much more than another excuse for a family get together and party.
Together we rejoice in the birth of the Savior of the world. Although Santa is a fun story, it's nothing more than that - a make believe feel good story, but Jesus' birth is a reality. He is the true light, which gives light to everyone, who came into the world to give his life a ransom for many. And He is the true treasure of Christmas. This is the message we want to bring to our Japanese friends. Will you pray that they will understand this truth?
