The Christmas program for this year happened December 8. Team members from LWA led in the singing of traditional Filipino Christmas carols and prepared games that brought a lot of laughter to everyone. The residents, in-turn, prepared special numbers to entertain our team, showcasing their different talents that really blew our minds. We also prepared food for them to enjoy with each other.
But the highlight of the event was the message. Dennis talked about how God was revealed through Jesus, the Creator of everything and everyone. He explained that despite us being created by Him, the Bible tells us that when He came here, mankind did not recognize Him and so, received Him not. Dennis emphasized that man, in our time, still rejects Him by his continuous love for sin that will someday bring eternal suffering for him. It was in that point that the hope of the Gospel was declared. Jesus was bannered as the only source of salvation which anyone can receive through repentance and faith on Him.
We had a great time with the residents of the facility. We know that God's work there is producing eternal results. One day, we will see those results. Maybe not here on earth but for sure, Heaven will reveal those to us someday.
