Merry Christmas

Nativity Scene

Last night I once again had the pleasure of visiting the National Childrens Home here in Jamaica with a group of friends from the Bible Study I attend. Last year was the first time I had attended and enjoyed it, so of course I would want to go again this year.

Once again we had a fun time! We sang songs with them, played with them, gave them a few gifts and most importantly the word of God was shared with them. A few even decided to make a commitment to the Lord. So please pray that these young children will grow up to be God seeking people, who live to honour and glorify His name.

It brought joy to my heart to hear their responses when questions were asked about God. It brought joy to my heart to see the smiles on their faces as they sang and danced. It brought joy to my heart just to know that they were having a wonderful time. It’s not often that they get to have things like this, but I’m sure that for the short time we were there they really appreciated it.

So spread a lot of that Jesus Love, not just this holiday season but all through the year. In all you do, do it to bring glory and honour to the most high God.

I wish for you a happy and holy Christmas filled with God’s love. May he bless you all greatly and guide you and protect you always.

Merry Christmas to you too Robert. God’s blessings on your family also.

It has been a pleasure to meet you also. I’m sure we will be speaking quite a bit more in the future. Take care.

WOW!! What an awesome posting Yan. I needed the tissues for this. Not many people can see, feel, and appreciate what you experienced, let alone put it in to words. May God continue to bless you with your ability to share his word and love with others everywhere. I will definitely pray for these children that they will continue to open their hearts to receive our Lord. I know you haven’t posted for a while because of school commitments, but this was worth the wait. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Merry Christmas Yannick! Boy, I am a little jealous. My wife and I have a special place in our hearts for the children of Jamaica. May the Lord continue to bless you and your ministry to them.

Claire: Thanks. Yes please do pray for them. Thank you also for blessings. Though I didn’t share the message with them, I do hope one day perhaps I can. May the Lord continue to be your strength Claire.

Mark: Belated Merry Christmas to you too. Thank you for the blessings and though it’s not my ministry in the sense that I didn’t start it, I do hope that we (the group that usually goes) and others will continue to help bring joy and the Word of God to these young children. May the Lord bless your family also Mark.

Hey Brian,

Thank you. I pray that you and your fellow members that do prison ministry may continue to make the gospel known to those prisoners. You guys are doing a wonderful job.

God’s continued blessings on you, your family and your church.
