December is here! As 2018 draws to a close, we are grateful to the Lord for enabling and empowering us throughout the year. We are also keenly and deeply aware that the prayers and gifts of our ministry partners have been instrumental in enabling our work both locally and beyond. Thank you for coming alongside us.
The spiritual heartbeat of what we do harkens back to the first advent—the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. As it says in Galatians 4:4, “But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law” (NASB). Because He came, we have much joy and hope to share with everyone. While attending a Buddhist Network Forum in October, I heard an account of how Jesus impacted a Buddhist community in North Thailand. Everyone at the forum was reminded that “The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood” (John 1:14 MSG). We do not introduce religion and church to people. We bring Jesus into the lives of people through our love and example.
The gospel is really Good News and we deeply desire to bring it to those in our neighbourhoods who do not know Christ. During this festive season, teens in TheNavTeens (TNT), youths from our campus ministries and members of our community ministries will all be sharing this wonderful news to their respective communities.
Moving forward, we anticipate the Lord to move powerfully in our midst, especially as we pray for more of our people to go beyond our shores to share the Good News in the coming year. Once again, thank you for being such a wonderful partner in the faith and ministry. May God’s richest favour be upon you and yours this Christmas!
