2020 December Newsletter
Dear Live Connection Family,
As we come to the close of 2020, most of us will be really glad to put this year behind us.
However, as we think about “..forgetting what lies behind… Brothers and Sisters,’ we also need to ‘strain towards what is ahead, and press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called us heavenwards in Christ Jesus.” Phil 3:13
For most of us, it has been a really difficult time, and we will be going into the New Year with no obvious end in sight. So it is a good reminder to ‘Keep our eyes fixed on Jesus,’ Hebrew 12:2 and not on the problems that surround us.
A huge thank-you to every one of you who has faithfully partnered with the vision of Live Connection throughout 2020. I know that for some, it has not been easy, and has meant huge sacrifices on your part. Many of the letters that have come through have testified of God’s care and concern at just the right time for our hard pressed pastors, enabling them to provide leadership and compassion into the lives of their local communities. Your financial contribution makes a life-changing difference, not only to the pastor’s family, but also to the community he serves.
At the beginning of the year, we were planning our 20 year celebration – as well as many Mission trips. Sadly, none of that was possible. This year will mark Live Connection’s 21st year of ministry, and God willing, hope to celebrate it together.
Once again, thank you for your love, care and partnership – we don’t take it for granted. We continue to thank God for you. It is only because of your faithfulness that we can continue to take these huge steps of faith. ‘Let us not grow weary in doing good but rather press forward’ together.
We wish you a blessed Christmas as you celebrate the birth of Jesus and a happier 2021!
The Live Connection Team
