Jesus is the Reason for the Season

Each year we read more and more of how Christ is being taken out of Christmas. It is no longer "politically correct" to mention the birth of Jesus during the "holiday season." Stores now sell "family trees" and people get time off for the "winter holiday." How sad to see the world forgetting the most important purpose of the holiday: remembering the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Thankfully here in Peru we can still celebrate "CHRISTMAS!" The city is filled with nativity scenes and reminders of Christ's birth. In the part of town where we live the local government has put up banners on the light poles that say "In La Molina Christmas IS Jesus!" The city hall has a nativity scene on display and Christ's birth is clearly remembered. If only the people knew the true story of Jesus and His gift of eternal life. We pray that God will touch the lives of many this Christmas season.
