PLEASE PRAY that as the excitement of Christmas and New Year is now behind us, and the ‘January blues’ begin to set in, that we would
continue to keep Jesus as our daily focus and that the passion we have for Him stays alive throughout the year.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Matthew 2:1-12 as the Magi followed the star to find Jesus, endured the long journey and challenges, bringing Him gifts, let us too do all it takes to follow Jesus with all our hearts.
