Friends, Christmas is upon us, and we just want to take a quick minute to wish you a merry, merry Christmas—from our global family to yours!
Hectic schedules and long to-do lists typically accompany this happy season, but it is my hope that your busyness is fueled not just by obligation, but by joy and love as you rush from here to there… shop for this and that… and bake and cook and collapse on the couch in laughter and happy exhaustion.
I hope you’re busy making precious new memories with those you love.
I hope seeing these beautiful smiles and messages from around the world touches your heart.
And I hope you’re taking moments to pause and reflect, letting the miracle that Christmas really is strike you in a new and fresh way.
This Christmas season, it’s John 1:14 that has made me pause:
“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
Does it hit you deeply too? Jesus became flesh and blood…and dwelt among us. Us. He left the perfection of heaven to live with people like you and me in a broken world with hunger and hardship, sorrow and sin.
Does it make you say “wow” quietly under your breath? What a miracle. What great love.
It’s because of that love we have a Savior who intimately knows us—He knows your name, my name, and name of the tiny, hungry child we serve meals to halfway around the world.
He is the reason we all can have joy today and hope tomorrow, despite circumstances. And He’s the reason we can know peace, though the world is in turmoil.
So, from all around the world, we remember and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with you! We’re so glad you’re a part of our family!
