God is faithful, loving, caring and always present with us. He has given us a beautiful year and this far, He has been our Ebenezer! Through all of you our friends, our supporters in thoughts, prayers, material and financial gifts and through communication and visitation, we smile together and say “glory and honor belong to our God”. We are all well, healthy and smiling to know that we are loved!
Christmas is here, and although we are not able to do much with the children, we make joyful noises to God, praising him with the few who can put some words together and clap in joyful singing. Besides David who talks fluently, 3 other children have learned several words and are able to join in the singing and also in our learning class. Like we have done many times before, we plan to participate in Christmas carols in a couple Churches with 5 children who sing and enjoy being in a Church. We look forward to that.
Praises: Praise God with us for a year full of blessings. Its been a year of good health for the children and the caregivers; Praise God for the many people who visited us this year and experienced the presence and the love of God in our Home. Pray for continued health for all of us; for continued improvement in the various abilities of our children; for 2 children ready to join En-Gedi, but whose birth certificates need to be processed. it has taken unreasonably too long. Pray also that we will have a joyous Christmas season.
May the blessings of peace, the beauty of hope, the spirit of love and the comfort of faith be your gifts this Christmas.
From all of us at En-Gedi Children’s Home.
