Christmas and Salvation

Our children’s programs had wonderful Christmas programs full of food, music, celebration, and the true meaning of Christmas – in fact at least 13 people were saved through these programs!

  • In Oaxaca, families were invited for a delicious meal and beautiful pageant. Each of the grades performed a dance or depiction of a Biblical story or truth. Pastor Victor shared the story of God’s love at Christmas. 

  • In Haiti, the children gathered to celebrate the birth of Jesus with prayer, reciting scripture, a wonderful meal, and gifts. Pastor Chavanne led the children in thanking God for the Forward Edge Family and asked them to continue to prayer for the mission to expand.  

  • In Kenya, the sponsored children and their families enjoyed a Christmas party with scrumptious meal, Christmas carols, multiple cakes, and the Gospel. Each family received a Christmas gift hamper with food for the families. 

  • In Uganda, the staff organized a Christmas party for the children of Katanga slum – a place that would use the joy and peace of Jesus. Due to the large number of children, the community leaders assisted the Forward Edge team with the children. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful meal and a beautiful “Merry Christmas” cake. 

  • In Ghana, needed food packages were distributed to families so they would have food for Christmas together. 

  • In Cuba, the program had their annual Christmas dinner with 345 people attending! The team provided a terrific Cuban meal, and the Gospel was presented to all. That day, 13 people from the community accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior! 

Each celebration was unique and reflected the wonderful work of the program. The hope, love, joy and peace of Christmas were shared with many because of you!
