A Very Branson Christmas

We're beginning our fourth week in Branson already. What a joy!

Every day is generally filled with action and activity. Early rising. Music & conversations with the ever-changing Branson crowd. Yet, each morning as we gather before the program, time stands still for a moment. We gather around, standing in a tight circle. And in those moments, our hearts our knit together for one purpose: To share the life and light of Jesus Christ. 

During this season, hearts are open to hearing about the birth of our Savior. What an opportunity! 

And on a slightly different note: 

If you've ever attended a Branson show, you'll know that costuming and staging is an integral part of each production. This isn't merely a concert. And so, during the 2 hour show, we have several different 'sets'. For now, we'll be sharing a few pictures from our "Christmas reds."

Thank you, again, for all your continued prayers!

Love has come - a light in darkness!
Love explodes in the Bethlehem skies. 

See, all heaven has come to proclaim it;
Hear how their song of joy arises;

Love! Love! Born unto you, a Savior.
Love! Love! Glory to God on high. 

Love is born! Come share in the wonder;
Love is God now asleep in the hay.

See the glow in the eyes of His mother;
What is the name her heart is saying? 

Love! Love! Love is the name she whispers;
Love! Love! Jesus, Emmanuel.

Love has come, He never will leave us!
Love is life everlasting and free. 

Love is Jesus within and among us;
Love is the peace our hearts are seeking.

Love! Love! Love is the gift of Christmas;

Love! Love! Praise to You, God on high! 

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son
That whosoever believes in Him should not perish, 
but have everlasting life."
John 3:16
