Merry Christmas – Milton Jones

Posted by & filed under Devotions.

“May Your Christmas be more Glorious than Grand!” One of my family’s favorite Christmas traditions is to watch “A Christmas Carol.”  But we don’t just watch any version of it.

Today’s guest post comes to us from Kyle Mitchell.  You can read more from Kyle and his wife Lynea at kyleandlynea.blogspot.com ____________________________________________ Kyle Mitchell visited the Hogar de Niños, a CRF children’s home in Catacamas, Honduras in 2003. His experience there changed his life and we want to share it with you! During the summer of 2003, the course of my life changed forever. I was 19 and had finished my first year at college. My best friend was interning at the Branch Church of Christ in Texas that summer, and insisted that I go with his church on a trip to Honduras. I’d never been out of the country before and was reluctant to answer yes. But answer yes, I… Read more »
