Children's Christmas Celebration
This Christmas Season, we are so thankful for how the Lord led us as a family on mission! For the first time ever, our kids did their own celebration and invited family members and people that cared for them in times of hardship from their villages. They planned the entire celebration themselves with one goal in mind: To lavish love, encourage and bless them and that it would testify of the love God has for them.
As we write this, we are so full of joy in our hearts at how God is at work in their lives. They gave up their Christmas presents to buy gifts for all the people they invited, declaring that it is so much better to give than to receive. Then our oldest son shared the gospel and reminded us all that Christmas is and has always been about the Lord Jesus and His desire that none should perish but have everlasting life through Him. Shortly afterwards, seven of our visitors committed to give their lives to Jesus and we surrounded them as a family and prayed with them. God is at work in our kids and it’s beautiful to behold.
This Christmas, may we all look at Jesus, our perfect Shepherd and follow Him with all our hearts!
Annual Staff Christmas Celebration
What an honor and joy to celebrate Jesus with our staff this year at our Annual Staff Christmas Celebration! Many of our staff brought their spouses and others a close friend. We enjoyed some nice food, danced…. and danced as we wholeheartedly sang carols and worshiped the Lord, surprised each other with gifts and most importantly, we testified of what Jesus has done in our lives.
This time was so precious as five of our staff shared their testimonies of when they encountered Jesus and the deep transformation he brought in their lives. We ended with sharing about our deep need for Him as a community and how grateful we are for His promise “when we seek Him with all our hearts, we will find Him!”
Merry Christmas from the TCOAC Family!
