Like a kid at Christmas

Today we had our Staff Christmas party with the theme: “Christmas through the eyes of a child.”

Over the last couple of weeks our staff submitted pictures from childhood and we turned them into a slide show and a  game (these folks like to compete!).    We had a blast trying to correctly identify folks from pictures taken years ago …some from a long, long time ago! 

We ended the time praying for our missionaries, their children and the People Groups where children have never heard of Jesus.  At the close of our prayer time, Karolyn C. sang  “Some Children See Him.”   Here’s the last verse:

The children in each different place 

Will see the baby Jesus’ face

Like theirs, but bright with heavenly grace,

And filled with holy light.

O lay aside each earthly thing,  

And with thy heart as offering,

Come worship now the infant King. 

 ‘Tis love  that’s born tonight!


The hope of our children and the children of the world?  Jesus!
