Christmas in Uganda - Advent with Compassion


Please watch this video. 
Be grateful for life, and what we take for granted in the west.

This dear girl, Lyz tells of Christmas in Uganda,
The fellowship, food, worship, excitement & anticipation.
Lyz also mentions some presents that she received in past Christmases:
a mattress, shoes, a mosquito net... 
A simple gifts that could positively change or save a life.

My prayer is that we can reflect on the true meaning of Christmas:
God's gift of Jesus to the world, to bring love & salvation to all.
And for us (mea culpa) to not fixate on the "stuff"...
