Merry Christmas from Ardena Baptist mission board! Our hearts desire this month is to help the men that are residents at the Asbury Park Rescue Mission and are in the recovery program for addiction. How wonderful to help them give gifts to their children that they themselves are unable to do at this time in their life. But we know through Christ’s power and love there is hope of an everlasting recovery to become the men and fathers God intended them to be.
On December 5th and December 12th, you will find a Christmas tree with tags on it in the vestibule. The tags will have the children’s names, and their ages on them. There is a suggested gift on each tag. All gifts need to be returned by December 19. Please prayerfully consider giving a gift to a child to show God’s love and your love for them.
As 2021 comes to a close, we thank you for the privilege to partner with you, our congregation, to spread God’s good news of Jesus’ love abroad and in our own local mission.
God bless you!
