Our pastor is still out of the country but members of the congregation stepped up to fill in while he was away. We were blessed by a word from our brother, Lemuel, yesterday!
The first candle of Advent is Hope. We felt the Hope of this season as our church gathered for Sunday worship in this unfinished building. The church is just a shell right now and there is much to do before we move in to the space permanently. A short term mission team is here from the states to do some work on this project and it was a blessing to have them in the service with us.
During this season of preparing room in our hearts for the coming of Christ may we each seek eagerly after Him. I trust that this Christmas won't be all about the gifts or lack thereof under you tree because no matter how much or how little you have He is the reason we celebrate!!
