In the Air there’s a Feeling of Christmas

img_3608There’s a neighborhood in Archdale off of Surrett Drive where the community has extensively decorated for Christmas.   This year I have had the privilege of taking several of the Burmese families out to see the lights.   Tuesday, Kay and I took Than La and Mu Nai and their children.   Wednesday, I took Taro, New Pywoe and her four children and Thursday night we took some of the Thakbal family.  We have enjoyed listening to carols on the car CD and seeing how people have prepared their homes to celebrate Christmas.  Christmas is my favorite time of the year but this year I have been exceptionally blessed to enjoy this time with my new friends.

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
