During October and November we have continued with the ministry work in the communities of General Villamil Playas and our goals remain clear and precise—to spread the message of Jesus Christ to the children of these communities. We want each person that hears the message to be lead into a personal faith in Jesus and to develop a God-pleasing testimony.
We are finishing November and are praying and thinking about the needs that we have as a ministry for the Christmas activities in December. On December 8th we will have our small Christmas party for the children and later that same day a small dinner for the youth to remember the real reason and meaning of Christmas.
On December 15th we will invite families from the communities that surround Campamento Faro de Esperanza to our Christmas program “Navidad de FE” for the second year in a row. We are thankful to God that he has provided through our brothers and sisters in Christ, and we have been able to hold these activities in December. We will be together for a time of love and happiness for the families.
It’s our second year that we will be sharing with the families from the communities with Navidad de FE program and maybe for some it will be their first time to celebrate with us.
Navidad de FE was initially inspired by our friends at Camp Crossroads in Canada. They hold a Christmas program like this with the same purpose—to thank and bring together the community and its ministry. One of the things about this Christmas Dinner at the Camp Crossroads, is that the first dinner they had with their community they only had a small number of families attend so there was a lot of food and work that went into the event for the few that attended; I imagine there were doubts and questions as to whether or not to continue the following year, but in the end they decided to do it, knowing that it was the beginning of a new challenge.
So, Ministerio FE (the ministry of camp) welcomes Christmas between receiving, learning, and giving of themselves what others need, and our goal is to share with people the true meaning of Christmas, and the plan of reconciliation that God had for humanity.
Glory to God in the highest, and on the earth peace among men with whom he is well pleased. Luke 2:14
