Merry Christmas from One Challenge

Advent and the birth of Jesus at Christmas begin the liturgical Christian calendar, so, along with Merry Christmas, we will also say Happy New Year! As we celebrate the coming of Christ this season, we also want to thank you, our faithful partners, for your prayer and support in 2022. We hope you find hope in this Christmas season.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,”
Isaiah 9:6.

Christmas Poem: ‘Twas an Eve in December

‘Twas an Eve in December
– by the Ellers (an OC family)

‘Twas an eve in December
And all through the earth
God’s Spirit was moving
From Mali to Perth.
Angels rejoicing
And singing His worth
As worshippers celebrate
His holy birth
The Word lived among man
He taught and He led
Blind men could see
And thousands were fed.
Thousands are coming
To bow at His throne
You pray and you give
To see His name known.
We celebrate Jesus,
The great King of kings
Born in a stable
His glory we sing.
To our friends far and near
We have one special wish,
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a blessed year.
His death brings us life
He rose from the dead
He lives today
With His Bride He is wed.
His message is simple
His heart is so clear
He wants us and loves us
And holds us so dear.
We are sharing His story
Wherever we go;
Loving and trusting
By faith they will know.
