Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Judy, Vic & the Good News Volunteers!

Judy and Vic Baus

Dear Friends,
I have been reflecting on what Christmas really means and how we should enter 2018. I believe God wants us to leave 2017 loving others, forgiving others and giving to others, and enter 2018 the same way! I challenge you and myself as well to purpose in our hearts to live in a way that brings honor and glory to our Lord.

Why? Because that’s what Jesus did for us. He gave us the best present ever—the gift of salvation—and that’s what Christmas is all about. God loved mankind so much that He sent His Son to earth to ultimately become our sacrifice for sin. Through Jesus, we can have forgiveness and a beautiful relationship with God. Wow, what a mission statement.

That is what I call real giving. He gave so we can live!

Let’s take a fresh look at a verse we know so well...

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

And the next verse... For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:17) This is ultimate Giving!

For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men! (Luke 2:14)

If we do not celebrate Jesus, why are we celebrating? The greatest gift we can give anyone is to share the salvation message with them, if they do not already know Him. Then the best gift is giving of our time, talent and money, especially to those in need. That is what Jesus would do, and it is His birthday party.

Vic and I are ending 2017 with giving and starting 2018 with giving. I challenge you to do the same. It brings the giver so much joy. We are so blessed to have you a part of GNM.

Princess Verdida

Pastor Ellis,founder of Happyland Preschool outside Manila, wrote us about this little girl who faithfully attended Happyland children’s ministry. Sadly, only a few weeks ago, at only 8 years of age, Princess Verdida passed away after succumbing to severe diahrrea and dysentery. The following is part of what Pastor Ellis wrote about this precious one.

“Princess Verdida never went to a McDonald's; never went to a zoo; never rode in a car; never attended a movie theater and had popcorn and a coke. Her joy and foundation of her life was attending HappyKids; hearing the Bible stories; singing children’s Christian songs; being made to laugh and learning to pray from her HappyKids teacher; and anxiously preparing and waiting for our annual HappyKids Christmas party.

“Princess Verdida is why we do what we do. Our goal, our motivation, is to give love everyday to the children whom God sets in our path, and especially at Christmas! We try to help them be a little happier and to know Jesus a little more deeply. Verdida’s parents were grateful that we could help with the funeral expenses. Pray for God’s comfort on Verdida’s family.”

Good News Ministries is privileged to have a part, through prayer and finances, in this ministry to needy children in the slums of Manila. Many children like Princess Verdida have received Jesus in their hearts.

Christmas Gift Idea

Consider ordering Judy’s latest book “Path of the Spirit” as a gift for someone who wants to better understand the Person and work of the Holy Spirit.

A bishop friend of Judy’s recently wrote her: “Thanks be to God! Evangelist Dr. Judy, the last book you wrote is an excellent work! You did a great job!” Judy preached in his church and he wanted books to give to pastors. Who but God!
