From the Editor

Written by George Bok
"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given". (Isaiah 9:6).

As our thoughts are directed to Bethlehem in these weeks, we may join the shepherds and the wise men and others in wonder and adoration. "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given". We see that the mighty God is born a child. Thus He humbled and emptied Himself to exalt and fill us. He is born into our world. The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. He is born for us; He is given to us. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. By faith we may receive Him as our Saviour, our Immanuel, God with us. He took on our nature, our sorrow, our daily life, our punishment, was in our grave and now is with us. Therefore, we also are with Him, in His resurrection, ascension, triumph, and Second Advent splendour. (Spurgeon). Let us reverently bow before this Holy Child and worship Him. He came to seek and save the lost. Lord, what is man that Thou art mindful of him?

With this message we may go into the world and bring good tidings of great joy to many peoples and nations. These glad tidings may also sound in Cubulco and through our radio broadcast. In the following reports you may read of the Lord's work in these areas. Let us continue to support this work, for it is the Lord's work. You may not be able to do much, but do something. You may not be able to give much, but give something, and whatever you do or give, do it as unto the Lord.

In the November issue of the Messenger you were informed that John Brink is the new secretary of the Foreign Mission Committee. We like to thank Garry Postma for all the work he has done as secretary the last twelve years. He gave much time and put much effort to this work and he did it very well. May the Lord continue to bless you, Garry.

We may also inform you that our missionary, Pastor Everts, and his wife and children are doing well in Cubulco. Pastor Everts wants to send regular updates through your church bulletins to keep closer contact with his work, progress and needs. This information will be sent to your bulletin clerks once a month. He will also continue to supply articles for the Messenger.
