Thankful Christmas

Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Hebrews 13:15

This time of year is one of reflection and thankfulness. We look back at 2008 and we continue to experience ‘awe’ at what we have the privilege to be included. We are thankful for our Lord coming to this earth, living and dying so that we could have life eternal. We are thankful for our friends, family and supporters who pray and give to our ministries in Australia. Finally, we are thankful for our friends and family in our new homeland. We see more and more the reason for God bringing us to this land and the praise He deserves for allowing us to be part of His work in Australia.

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel”

Matthew 1:23

We want to wish you a great Christmas season and continue to remember Jesus as the Emmanuel, God with us. He is not just the reason for the season; he is the reason for all things. He is what we live for and we pray that all who reflect on this time of year would come to know Him, Jesus. As you look to 2009, know that you can have a future with the author of life, God the Father, through His Son, Jesus.

Thank you for all you are to us.

The adventure continues…
