We truly have so much to be “thankful” for! I hear some of us have tried to gather enough ingredients to prepare a Thanksgiving Day feast. A turkey can be found fairly easy, but someone noted it’s not complete without a green bean casserole. Where in Switzerland can one find french fried onions for such a casserole? To be honest, we have no idea but we thought ahead and brought those hard to find ingredients on our container from the U.S. a few months ago!
As we walk through seasons of life, especially during the holiday times where many of us may miss our home countries, our family has truly began to understand that our “citizenship” is in heaven with the Lord! It reminds me of what Paul says in the Bible:
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
In the weeks to come the LIFT ministry has some opportunities to share some holiday time together. Take note of the following dates and please pray for our anticipated launch date in late January as we leave our living room and “go public” in Zug down by the lake! (Details being worked out.)
So, as you can see, we are in a transitioning time and will have a large public push in Jan. 2005 (papers, signs posted, Amtsblatt, your ideas) to let Zug know there is a new Christian ministry using “the Bible and the English language” to share the GOSPEL message! Your ideas, comments and suggestions are appreciated.
Be thankful for what truly counts this holiday season, a life in eternity with our Creator, who came to save us through the virgin birth of Jesus Christ who was laid upon a manger……….. as you see the Nativity scenes of Christmas, remember that Jesus is truly the reason for the season!
In His grip and grace,
“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3 Go!
