In Global Stories

A cozy Christmas for me is twinke lights, being surrounded by the warmth of family and friends, and the Christmas Story in the Bible.

What Christmas treat would you like to find in your stocking on Christmas morning?

Although there is no culture of hanging stockings here, I would love to have chocolates from Trinidad and tea from Kenya.

Christmas usually involves good food! Tell us about this good food…

Crab and dumplings, curried goat, curried chickpeas, and roti.

Can you tell us about something that brings you HOPE?

What brings me hope is the statement Jesus made at the last supper (Mathew 26:29)” Mark my words—I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father’s Kingdom.”

How do you keep Christ in Christmas?

By reminding myself through the Word the miracle of the birth of Christ. Singing and listening to Christmas carols is my way of keeping Christ in Christmas.

Why was baby Jesus called Saviour? (Luke 2:11)

Because He is Christ the Lord.

What is your Christmas miracle?

The healing of my hands from Psoriasis eleven years ago.

Thinking back over the year, what has been the stand-out Word from God that keeps showing up in your life?

“Faithful” Jesus would be faithful to me—He never changes.

Is there someone that you would like us to pray for over Christmas?

Yes, Rhonda. She needs healing for her back.

Any final thoughts?

My thoughts and prayers are with you always. Yes, my days are very busy but never too busy to omit time for prayer.
