Have you thought about what God has for you this year? If not, slow down and ask Him. He wants you to live your life to the fullest, not have it pass you by as you run and hurry.
Now that Christmas and New Year celebrations are over, we find ourselves in the year 2011. It is amazing to think that time is going faster and faster. It seems that the technological age has brought incredible acceleration and speed. In the midst of this, God is teaching us to slow down and live one day at a time,  one hour at a time, one moment at a time.

Have you thought about what God has for you this year? If not, slow down and ask Him. He wants you to live your life to the fullest, not have it pass you by as you run and hurry. More than ever we are learning to "be where we are". Planning is good, looking ahead is good, but we are to live in the moment. When you do that, you will start getting a glimpse of God's timing and begin to understand that with Him one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like one day. Enjoy this year and most of all, enjoy God this year. Share His love with others like never before!

Varya and With Love for Kids Christmas Celebration
We are so excited to share with you how Varya and the orphan kids celebrate Christmas in Minsk, Belarus. A number of the children who have received Christ through camps and other outreaches conducted by With Love for Kids, have an opportunity to come and spend their holidays at the Warm House. It is a true highlight in their lives. They get to be together with other brothers and sisters and experience God's love all around. On the day of Christmas Eve at the Warm House, everyone cooks delicious food, gets dressed in their best clothes, and joins in the living room to share what God has done and what miracles He performed in their lives. It is an exciting time of sharing, testimonies and encouragement. The children wrap small gifts and then exchange them. They don't need much to be happy!

Marina and the New Believers
This season we also sent a care package to Pastor Marina in Vladivostok. She was beside herself when she received it. It contained some children' ministry materials as well as care items and clothing. Marina was blessed beyond words and thanks all of the partners for their generous giving! We couldn't do it without you! Thank you so very much!

This Christmas Marina celebrated being surrounded by new believers from her 6 home churches around town. These are the fruits of her labor and we are thrilled to be a part of it. Please, pray for the new believers to grow in Christ and for more open doors to bring others to God.
