Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, means usually happy , joyful  but is that possible this year? 

The beautiful Christmas carols that all sing of joy, such as

  • Joy to the world or
  • I’ve got the joy of Christmas in my heart or
  • We wish you a merry Christmas

Can we really rejoice and be cheerful, despite the pandemic, fear and lockdown?

We say YES, because the Savior has already been born to us. Corona will not be able to stop Christmas and the greatest gift of all time: Jesus Christ.

We are now driving down our action speed, letting good things be distributed in our needy neighbourhood, because many people are suffering from the lockdown that has been going on since March .  If they weren’t before, they’ve become poor, there’s no state aid in Uganda.

We pack gifts for our children, friends and staff, the house is already prepared with Christmas decorations and Silvia has opened the Christmas bakery. We rejoice in the Lord.

My current favourite song is this beautiful  ballad “It’s  about  the  cross” by the Ball Brothers from New Zealand. If you like to listen to it, you can freely click on it on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4_7eoTT0gA

With this message we now wish all our dear friends, supporters and readers a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year 2021!

It’s About the Cross   (The Ball Brothers)

It’s not just about the manger                                               
Where the baby lay
It’s not all about the angels
Who sing for him that day

It’s not all about the shepherds
Or the bright and shining star
It’s not all about the wise men
Who travelled from afar

It’s about the cross
It’s about my sin
It’s about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again

 It’s about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
It’s about the cross

It’s not all about the good things
In this life I’ve done
Its not all about the treasures
Or the trophies that I’ve won

It’s not about the righteousness
That I’ve find within
It’s all about His precious blood
That save me from my sin

It’s about the cross
It’s about my sin
It’s about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again

It’s about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
It’s about the cross

The beginning of the story
Is wonderful and great
But it’s the ending that can save you
And that’s why we celebrate

It’s about the cross
It’s about my sin
It’s about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again

It’s about God’s love
Nailed to a tree
It’s about how every drop of blood
That flowed from Him when it should have been me.

It’s about the cross
