A Remarkable Christmas Gift for Me

The Lord is great, for the first time we felt that lets buy the christmas gifts for the boys when they will return from their families and relatives with whom they get to spend time just for few weeks in a year. It has been our past experience that the boys return Home empty handed leaving all the new clothes, shoes back with their causins at home, actually they are being robbed by their relatives. So this is for the first time ever we felt that lets wait till they return from home. Well in my seven years of staying I had never seen such a contentment in the boys. None of them were anxious to get some more clothes or new gifts, it's not that they have got everything, in fact, few of them are in real need for a new pair of shoes or something they really cherish. But now they are so matured that they never grumble or complain for things. I am indeed a blessed man to live with these children.They are God's trophy to me. They are always happy and content. There is a deeper sense of joy and satisfication with in them.
In these days we have seen a deeper longing for God in our lives, and the people who were out of fellowship or backslidden are restoring back to the Lord and to His church. As we are at the christmas eve I am so blessed to receive these blessings from God the Father. Oh something is happening in the spiritual realm of Mussoorie, this is the gift we have received as a community in Mussoorie as our remarkable christmas gift. And what a comfort it is to know that we are a part of a bigger family of NHDH, love you people of God for your partnership in the work of God.

    Something is happening in the spiritual realm of New Hope Diamond Head as well. We have been joined with a community of believers who are so committed to us in prayer, and those prayers are having a tremendous impact on our lives here...especially mine.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Ashish, and for being such a wise "father" for these boys and an excellent role model as you pattern your own life after Jesus. Merry Christmas, and a very blessed 2008.
