Praise and Prayer Update (December 13, 2019)

Last week I asked you to join us in praying for the ESL International Christmas dinner we were hosting at Heritage.  The Lord answered our prayers in some wonderful ways.  We had over 160 people attend; many different countries were represented.

The highlight of the evening was singing Christmas carols and explaining the meaning of the Christmas story.  For some of our guests, the message of Christmas was unfamiliar.  What a joy to present the good news to these friends from around the world.

At the close of the evening, we gave gifts of sweet treats and spiritual resources (Bibles, Jesus DVDs).

Linda and I were grateful for the help given by friends from Hespeler Baptist Church and by students from Heritage.  We’re also grateful for your prayers.

Please pray that those who heard the good news would make room in their hearts to receive it.

Here are some pictures from the evening!
