Many children responded that afternoon when the call came to open the door of their hearts to Jesus. And after the invitation, they sang with all their hearts! It would have melted your heart if you could have seen their faces as they waited so patiently, only to explode with joy as they opened their Christmas gift. The Presence of God was among us because Jesus came to their village. His present on that day last December was His Presence and His Life given to each of them.
We were all encouraged and so very blessed to share with the children and village of ChaCha your love through this small Christmas gift and the story of Jesus. This one little gift is the most they will receive all year long. But it’s not just the gift that you help us give, it’s the anticipation of the celebration of His life that makes the difference. Thank you for giving us the privilege once again to share the Christmas story!
We have counted it a great honor to work hand in hand with Missionary Phyllis Newby since 1983 when she took us under her wings. She has been a life “poured out” for the people of Haiti. And now, with over 270 churches under her charge, she keeps loving and giving at 80 years of age. Like Caleb of old she still prays, “Give me the hill country (of Haiti) as you promised me…!”
