What They Need for Christmas

The devotional that I'm using had readings for the four Sundays of Advent. We decided to celebrate and we got out the candles and all sat Sunday night and read about the first messengers of the coming Savior. I noticed that our new boys didn't seem to understand what we were talking about so we asked if they knew why we celebrated Christmas. They mentioned everything red and green and threw in a few -"to show other people that we care" kind of answers.

It amazes me that kids right here in our community don't know that Christmas is about God's gift of Jesus.
So, we watched the movie, The Nativity tonight and we'll get out our little nativity set so we can tell the boys the good news that Jesus came to earth so that they can have a home in heaven.

Our misson field is down the hall sleeping in our Ikea bunkbeds.

We knew a family who adopted 4 very needy children. However, instead of seeing them as their mission field, they went to Romania as missionaries. It's a very sad story and too long for this comment but after a few years, the adoption was dissolved (or whatever the term may be) and the children were sent to different families in the states.

I am blessed by your heart for these children. May God richly bless your ministry.
