From the Executive Director
Once again it is Christmas, a time when many stop to reflect on years past and thoughts turn to hopes of peace on earth. I suppose that is logical because Jesus is the Prince of Peace. Today as we look at the condition of the world and what is going on with our country we are filled with fear. What with the unrest in the Middle East, the fear of ISIS attacking us here at home and perhaps an Ebola pandemic, it is unsettling and causes fear because we don’t know what the future holds. Yet we know that our only hope for peace is in the Christ Child that was born two thousand years ago.
Although Jesus did not say he was bringing peace to the world, He did say that He would give us peace in our hearts that the world would not understand. A number of times Jesus said to those He was with “Peace be with you”, so it seems what Jesus is telling us is He is our peace.
Today I hope Jesus is with you at this wonderful time of year and His peace is in your heart and home this Christmas Season.
Power In Prayer
Prayer is a very important part of any ministry. Without prayer and the work of God going on the Mission and Friendship House would become like any other social service. With the prayer of God’s people we will be able to continue to meet the physical and spiritual needs, providing hope, and giving a new start to many lives.
The Mission has included a place for your prayer requests HERE. If you submit a prayer request, during our staff meeting we will pray for you. As you send us your needs we will list them and seek God on your behalf.
Today I would like to invite you to sign up to be a prayer partner for the Mission and Friendship House. CLICK HERE to sign up to be a Prayer Partner. We are requesting your prayers for this work and on a regular basis we will send an e-letter advising you of the needs that you can help us pray for.
Thanks so much,
- Gary Rowell
