Celebrating Christmas with a difference, to be with the people who needs to know what Christmas is all about and changing their mere perception of the festival of lights, stars, Christmas trees and merry making, giving and showing them the real meaning of Christmas through the Sharing the word of God, Dramas based on the birth of Jesus Christ with the village kid's taking the prominent role under the supervision of IRIS team.
Non Ta ko Village and Ban Non Te Surin (Waew's village) were two villages we celebrated Christmas on 25th and 27th December. With the festive mood in the air, the joy and love that comes from the heart we shared our joy and love with the people in the villages through our presence being with them to the place where they belong, giving them the real Christmas meaning through activities such as Word of God and Choreographies by the Nation to Nation, YWAM DTS Lonavala, India which was responded by the villagers with great curiosity and attention. The Dramas based on the birth of Jesus Christ with the village kid's taking the prominent role under the supervision of IRIS team was another creative way of presenting the Gospel and the meaning of Christmas to people who never heard about what the Real Christmas is all about.Our God is never a boring God, He is a creative God who instills creativity in the minds of Human to present Him in such a time as this.
To add the beauty of Christmas and make known the gospel to the unknown the kids at Non Ta Ko village played a drama basing on the sacrifice for the sinners by Jesus on the Cross. It was indeed a night to remember with starry nights above our head, the Christmas trees, the balloons, the Christmas songs and above all the sweet communion of the Holy Spirit hovering around filling our hearts warmly.
Our Christmas celebration started with making the people know what Christmas is all about and it ended with joy of sharing what we have, through gifts for the children and delicious food for everyone prepared by Yoyo's Mother-in-law.We had a good number of people in both the villages and we thank God for bringing people who never came before. We Pray, Hope and Believe that this very Merry Christmas celebration is the door for bringing more souls in Christ and the answer they have been looking forth all their Life. To God be the Glory! Amen!
