I cannot imagine the hardships that our persecuted and imprisoned brothers and sisters face, but I continue to pray for all of you. I pray that you remember that, no matter what you have endured, Christ knows those hurts and is there for you (John 11:33-35) and delivers and heals (Matthew 8:17; Psalm 34:19-20).
The joy of Christmas and Christ is for you just as much as it is for anyone else (Luke 2:10). He is your Savior and He came to Earth for you! Celebrate Him this season.
