Greetings in Jesus name. I pray that all go well with you, and that you are safe and protected.
Even though we are unable to meet as a family as usual, Jesus is within us, and enables us to be connected to each other. This Christmas season is unlike any other Christmas we have known in our lifetime. It is hard to believe that we haven’t had fellowship with many of you since March.
One promise stands out to me today for our Ohana and that is, “Jesus is the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.” This is the hope that we have and thus we can celebrate this season in spite of what we are facing. Christ is our light, our hope, and our Savior. When the whole world is given over to fear, loneliness and hopelessness, we can turn our eyes to the Savior of the world as this Christmas season reminds us so. Let nothing keep you from celebrating the life of Christ in you.
We will all meet together as soon as things settle. Please love on your family. Reach out to others and keep trusting the Lord of Christmas who abides with us still. Please let us know if you have any prayer requests. Pastors and elders along with New Hope leaders are praying for you!
I pray and trust that the peace and grace of our Lord Jesus be with you during this Christmas and a New Year to come.
