Christmas has now officially arrived at Calvary Home. Festive decorations are up, presents are bought and wrapped, and school is out for the holidays! For many people, the Christmas season is “the most wonderful time of the year.” But for children in foster care, Christmas is one of the most difficult seasons. Christmas is supposed to bring families together, and for many children in foster care, being with their biological family over Christmas is not an option.
This is where house-parents help fill the void. Over the Christmas season, house-parents out-do themselves to provide a safe, fun, and memorable Christmas for the kids. However, we would be amiss if we lost the point of Christmas in all the chaos that Christmas tends to bring.
Over this Christmas Season, would you join us in praying that the kids would come to know and believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who became human that He might sympathize with us in our joys, sorrows, and weaknesses? And for our house-parents, that they might have the wisdom on how and when to share the hope of the Gospel, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior.
While Christmas brings a painful awareness of family separation, Christmas also brings the comfort and hope of Christ. Thank you for your prayers and support. Merry Christmas from the Calvary Home Family!
