Merry Christmas!

Christian blog On this day we hope you feel the presence of our Savior as we celebrate His grand love and His perfect will to move us closer to Himself.

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which translated means, “God with us.”

– Matthew 1:23, NASB


The artwork was drawn in 2003 by Elaine Vidal, a 10-year old sponsored child.

    I remember some notecards that were available to Advocates, or perhaps were sent to us, one year, each card bearing artwork by a sponsored child on the front. I was so sorry to run out of those, and no more were to be had. :-(
