“In Christ Alone” was the theme for this year’s National LCMS Youth Gathering. The first day focused on true joy, the kind of joy that stays no matter what, the joy that is ours in Christ alone. On my recent trip to Haiti the joy the children in Haiti have stood out to the entire team. They have so little but yet they are full of joy. What a blessing and reminder they are to us that it is through Christ that we know real joy! It isn’t how much stuff we have, what car we drive or the status that comes with our job. Our joy comes from keeping our eyes on the cross. It is wonderful supporters like you that allows the ears to open so the children in Haiti can learn what Jesus did for them and carry around that JOY every day as they share the Good News with others!
Please join us in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them by following God’s command to love your neighbor and feed the hungry. You may never get to meet the children in Haiti but your support blesses them every day with a warm nutritious lunch. Please accept this thank you for your support through vacation bible school, fundraising events, sponsoring a school, donations and your prayers as a warm hug from each child you have touched. Spread the Joy!
