The year 2015 is coming to a close, and as we pause to reflect, we can see how God has been leading and blessing in our Conference. Many have come to know Jesus as a result of evangelism throughout Minnesota. We can see the changes that have taken place at North Star Camp, and we know that many children will give their heart to Jesus there in the coming months and years. Our teachers are working daily to not only give our children academic instruction, but to point them to Christ.
Christmas is for love, joy, giving and sharing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
Thank you for letting God’s love shine through you as you minister in the churches, classrooms, offices, and neighborhoods, and especially, in your home. Your ministry makes a difference to the people you serve – a difference for eternity.
Our prayer is that the love of Jesus will shine through our lives during this Christmas season and throughout the coming year.
May the Lord bless you with joy, health, love, and a peace that passes all understanding, as we keep our EYES on Eternity.
Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
