Greetings to you all.
As we have come through this season of Advent and approach Christmas day, I am blessed to be reminded of the message the angels brought to the shepherds announcing the coming of our Savior.
And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11)
“Fear Not” is a phrase that has been helpful for us to be reminded of in the current season. COVID continues to be part of the conversation, and the world looks for solutions, bringing with it an environment of continued uncertainty. We can rest assured that the coming of our Savior on this earth has brought with it the most needed solution for our most significant problem of sin. Christ came in a manger but also came for the cross. His coming and work on the cross allows us to live without fear now, and with great hope for eternity. No circumstance can change what Christ has done.
We have experienced another year of God’s powerful presence and faithfulness as we have served through a devastating second COVID wave in 2021. Thank you for enabling, empowering and being the hands and feet of Jesus with us in this season. You have helped us bring the gospel and deliver food packets that have blessed impoverished communities during 2021. Communities experiencing hopelessness, hunger and homelessness have been sustained through gospel driven holistic solutions.
We look forward to 2022 with great hope and anticipation, blessed to bring the hope and light of our Savior to the unreached along with children and women who are considered to be at risk because of physical and spiritual poverty. We are grateful for your partnership as we continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus, delivering the good news of the Gospel along with real-life solutions of Food, Education, and Vocational training.
We pray that you will experience the presence of our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace in a powerful way as you celebrate the good news of great joy this Christmas season.
From the 25 house churches we say a big thank you for your generosity!!!!
Merry Christmas to you all
Jon and Swati Borde
