A Pilgrim’s Progress

This morning a phone call came from Mala, a Christian friend of ours living in India. I was stunned to learn what God is doing there. She told me that on Christmas morning a Christian pastor preached to a large gathering in her small town. He explained the Gospel and the people listened with interest.

Loving Others as We Have Been Loved

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35).

Peace in the Valley Lutheran told us about their experiences with donating three gift cards to help people in need in their community with a local organization, and what a blessing it has been.
