Finding Jesus at Christmas!

Posted by / in B4Blessing News, issues of the day / No comments yet

Have you ever found yourself looking for Jesus in the things going on around you? I’ve felt that way several times over the last few weeks. Its Christmas and we should be able to see Jesus in Christmas, right? That’s not so anymore.

A retreat center and prayer garden in a Middle East country that desperately needs a place for Christians to come together and pray. Another in Central Asia that provides the same opportunity. Often the businesses are restaurants and other small businesses serving the people with grace and honesty. The Korean church trains the people who go out in business and mission. There are medical people in China that I have worked with. People who stick through thick and thin. These are the things that the South Koreans have done – faithfully for many years. Their bravery and simple faith is exemplary.
