Merry Christmas Friends!
What a special Christmas this is for us as we get to be together with family and friends here in the States! As we can easily receive mail here, we would like to shamelessly give you our mailing address in case you would like to send us your Christmas photo or a card: 1310 Hurlburt Way, Minneola, FL 34715. We would love to hear from you! Also, read through to the end so you can see some recent photos of our family
We have really enjoyed our new church, The Grove, that we have been attending here in Florida. During the month of December, we are doing an advent study, The Coming, looking at these key passages that reveal the gift of Salvation for all the nations:
- Beginning in Genesis 3, a prophesy of Jesus on the cross, was given when God said to the serpent, “And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”
- Another prophesy of Jesus was given in Genesis 12 where The Lord said to Abram that, “All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”
- This blessing is not limited to one nation as we read in Matthew 28 where Jesus says, “Go and make disciples of all the nations.
- And ending in Revelation 7, we see the exciting outcome where, “a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb.”
Isn’t it fascinating to observe how history unfolded and how God lovingly offered a way of salvation, though Jesus, not just for one nation but for ALL. We are SO excited to join with God and His plan to build His Kingdom with men, women, and children from every nation and tribe and people and language!
