I love Christmas! I really do believe it is the most wonderful time of the year. Sure, there are the parties and cookies and decorations and gifts, but it is so much more. It is the season of Advent! Advent is the celebration of the coming of the Christ Child, and it helps to remind us to celebrate and anticipate His return as well.
That anticipation gives us more of a reason to seek out those who do not know Him and share with them the truths of the gospel.
I am so excited for the opportunity to be a part of planting a church. New churches are great ways to reach new people for Jesus. It takes a great deal of ground work, planning, and coordination to launch a church. God has gifted me for the very position I am in to begin the planning of evangelistic activities, coordinating mission teams, and laying a foundation of administration for a new church.
God has not called everyone to this task full time, but He has called us. Please continue to pray for us as we continue to follow His leading and as we seek the lost and give them something to celebrate at Christmas.
