ONE FAMILY’S CHRISTMAS GIFT
Christmas is a time for reaching out to those in need, as Christ reached out to us when He came into the world to die for our sins. Recently Bethel was privileged to act in Jesus’ name to make a difference in one family’s life. The following note from Bethel member Carley Clarke, contained in a Christmas card intended for our whole church family, tells the story:
A few months back I requested assistance from the church for a low income family who were moving to a new home. Their prior home had been infested with bed bugs, and they were left with very few belongings—they had to throw out all their furniture.
I made the request to [one of the deacons]—and how giving hearts blessed this family! About one month ago I sat in their new house filled with amazement, joy, and praise to our Saviour! Their entire home was furnished. They had dishes and bedding. The Lord had most certainly ignited hearts to respond to their need.
I was compelled to share this miracle with you. Praise God for His mercy and compassion!

Sometimes the needs of the world seem so great, and our efforts to help so small. But this letter from an ambassador to our church’s neighbourhood suggests that we have brought joy to one family. That is no small thing, because each person and each family matters to God.–Pastor Tom
