MERRY CHRISTMAS

Nadia was Baptized by Pastor Shawn on December 25th, 2006
I want to wish each of you a very merry CHRISTmas. We had blessed Christmas Eve services and the highlight was at the end of the last service (we had a total of six services) we had a young lady named Nadia come forward and was baptized into Christ.

And the wonder of this decision was that she was converting from Islam. She was a muslim and today she is a CHRISTIAN. WOW!!! We are seeing more and more muslims converting to Christianity at our church.

This is the ONLY hope for peace in the world and it is the ONLY hope for peace in your HEART.

I want to thank each of you for your cards, gifts and notes that I received over the past few weeks. I am one of the most blessed Pastors in AMERICA. Thank you for your love and kindness.

Again. Be blessed today and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

I thought you would enjoy this one. Blessings, Walter
A candymaker in Indiana wanted to make a candy that would remind people of the true meaning of Christmas; so he made the candy cane to incorporate several symbols for the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus Christ. He began with a stick of pure white, hard candy. He used White to symbolize the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus, and hard to symbolize the Solid Rock, the foundation of the Church, and the firmness of the promises of God.
The candymaker then shaped his cane into the form of a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus, who came to the earth as Savior. It could also represent the staff of the "Good Shepherd" with which He reaches down to reclaim the fallen lambs that, like sheep, have gone astray.
Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candymaker strained it with Red stripes. He used three small strips to show the stripes of the scourging Jesus received. The large red stripe was for the blood of Christ on the cross so that we could have the promise of the eternal life.
