Holiday on the House

I want to say thanks to everyone who made Holiday on the House possible.  Everyone who participated knows without a doubt that it is more blessed to give than to receive.  We gave the following letter to the families we assisted last week.

We feel honored to be a part of your Christmas celebration this year.  This is one of our favorite times of the year because of what this holiday means.  Jesus was born in a manger in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago.  Do you know why?  Part of the reason is found in Jesus’ own words when He said this, God's Spirit is on me; he's chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor, sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, to set the burdened and battered free, and to announce, "This is God's year to act!”
He didn’t say anything about coming to the good, the beautiful, the rich, or the religious.  He said he came for the poor, the prisoners, the blind, the burdened, and the battered.  Can you relate to any of those?  I sure can.  Jesus was born so that you and I could know that God wants to do something, “This is God’s year to act!”  God wants to do something for the poor, the prisoners, the blind, the burdened, and the battered.  God wants to do something for YOU!  In fact, He’s already started.  See, that’s why you have this letter and this gift – because God loves you. 
We love you too.  You are special to us and we want you to know that we are praying for you.  If you’re ever discouraged, please remember that you have friends at Transformation House that are thinking about you and praying for you.
Have a wonderful Christmas.
Pastor Tony Moore and all your friends at Transfomation House
