Shining God's Light

We have felt the darkness of sin come over our nation with the recent tragic events on both sides of our country.  We mourn and pray for the peace and comfort through Christ will come to those who lost a loved one.  For us who call ourselves Christ-followers, our commission from Christ to make disciples who make disciples could not be more important or of more urgency.  Our society and culture have pushed God out of our schools, government and businesses.  The solution starts with us, sharing the gospel of Christ, one heart at a time.  Today, work building God's kingdom, here and now, was done with joy.  

Over one hundred of our neighbors in need came to our Christmas In The Park outreach event at
Eucalyptus Park.  God's preparation was an overwhelming response of families of volunteers, parents, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends.  The buffet of the Lord's Table included, 60 hamburgers donated by Halphen Red Burgers, roast turkey, ham, delicious side dishes, wonderful home-baked cookies, cupcakes, pies, and fresh fruit.  A large supply of material resources such as clothes, socks and shoes was available.  Our raffle for our guests and neighbors included toys for the children, blankets, sleeping bags, tents and the grand prizes of 3 bicycles, all donated by our generous volunteers.  

And as fantastic as all the physical blessings were, the Lord provided our outreach event with talented musicians from the Nazarene Church and the Aspeytia family to share praise and worship. Our Church Without Walls-Chula Vista pastor from Set Free Ministries, Donny Burroughs gave the message of repentance and salvation.  Many of our children from the ministry performed various Christ-honoring performances to entertain the crowd.  God's love could been seen and felt throughout the event.  Two of our neighbors made the decision to accept God's grace and asked Christ to be the Lord and King of their life.  They took the next step to go into the East County Transitional Living Center program.  God continues to bless our ministry and our Church Without Walls Outreach.  Praise Father God for the gift of sending His son Jesus and the opportunity for us to share His gospel.
