When he heard about the mystery of the birth of Jesus,
he understands and remembers that the sinless innocent man came to save us.
He also said that he remembers the part about the virgin conception is the fulfilment of the prophecy
in the book of Isaia through Jesus.
He said he had heard it before but he felt a new today.
오늘 예수 그리스도 이름의 뜻 말씀을 듣고 예수님이 참 선지자이실 뿐만 아니라 참 제사장,
참왕으로 오신 그리스도 기름부음 받은자 구원자라는 것이 확실해 졌다고 나눔.
매번 올때마다 새로운 은혜를 받을 수 있어 감사하다. 기도제목은 내가 생각해서 맞다고 느끼는것을 의지하지 말도록.

그래서 건강을 위해서 기도하고 싶냐고 물어보니 고개를 끄덕였음.
그래서 오늘 다같이 도슨과 어머니를 위해 축복기도를 했음.
Mr D (Mrs M's Son)
He can not talk so he wrote down his prayer topics.
He said he wants to pray for his mother.
So we asked him if he wanted to pray for her health, and he nodded.
So today we all together blessed Mr D and his mother in prayer.
오늘 간식으로 핫도그를 했는데 5개 정도가 남아 거리에 홈리스 분들에게 가서 주며
복음 전하고 다음주 모임에 초청을 하였습니다. 우리 모임이 교회 인거 알아서 좋아했고
작은 일이지만 무척 보람되고 일군들도 기뻐했습니다.
기도해 주셔서 감사드립니다. 안녕히계세요.
We had hot dogs for snack today,
we had about 5 servings left so we shared them to the homeless and had a chat,
shared the gospel and invited them to our gathering next week.
They all knew that it was a church gathering and they were happy.
One of them was happy to hear that we are back again next week.
Although it was a small thing, it was very rewarding and all the workers were happy.
Thank you for your prayer.
