Christmas at the Harms house

Merry Christmas, team! This is the view over my sewing machine, where many a Christmas present is hurriedly being finished this week. David is eating peppermint bark and watching Star Trek, rain is steadily falling outside, and all is right with the world. We are rejoicing this year for the time with family and friends as our lives are about to change...a lot. They've changed already...you'll notice the bare futon frame--we're sleeping on the mattress, and I'm too lazy to move it every day. But the tree is up, and it reminds us that some things don't change--Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Also unchanged are the reasons He came: "You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin" (I John 3:5). It's still a mystery to me, but one that I hold on to, because it's the only hope I have. We hope that all of you can celebrate that same hope--that the sinless Christ died for your sins that you can know God, the greatest gift ever given.

We're thankful for your friendship and teamwork--more grateful than ever, as the time approaches for us to leave. We're at 95%, and departure will be here before we know it! Please pray for our program manager as he begins to search for a house for us, and pray for our packing and moving decisions to be wise.

  1. You can just think of the futon frame as a nice park bench in your apartment! :-)
