After reading so many missionary biographies, I am so very, very grateful for things like modern technology - which allow me to continue participating with events going on back in the States. Can you imagine being a missionary who says goodbye, sets sail, and heads into the completely unknown and isolated? I am so glad that the Lord has not called me to that type of mission work!
As we draw nearer to Christmas, it is our prayer that you would be able to truly savor our Savior as your Bread of Life - that He would be what fills you up this Christmas rather than anything else. That we would all be able to reflect on the ways that the Lord uses difficult circumstances and teaching in our lives to draw us closer to Him. That we would all be able to focus on Christ this Christmas!
