Merry Christmas to all the faithful volunteers and friends of Pocono Community Church.
Thank you for your tireless effort and commitment to reaching our community for Jesus.
Because of your ministry, about 2100 people attended our 5 Christmas Eve services where over 200 people made a confession of faith in Jesus Christ. Also, hundreds of pounds of food was donated through our "Canning Christmas" outreach to help those in need.
I pray you have peaceful time with friends and family this Christmas. Thank you again for your commitment to changed lives!

I'm currently making this post from my hotel in Haifa, Israel. This week I'm in the Holy Lands with a small group of pastors touring the land and spending time with Jacob's Hope.
Jacob's Hope provides compassion ministries and outreach to the Jews living around the world. Some of their outreaches include medical supplies and treatment, emergency supplies, food distribution and more.
Specifically, they have 6 warehouses positioned strategically throughout Israel that are designed to meet the physical and spiritual needs of Jewish people. Interestingly, 25% of Jews in Israel live below the poverty line. Another 25% live at or just above the poverty line.
Apparently the lion share of the Israeli governmental expenses go to the national defense and understandably so. Israel is completely surrounded by its enemies. Only last week two missiles launched from Lebanon landed only miles from my hotel.
This is my first time in Israel. It's amazing to be in the land where Jesus' lived and walked. The Bible literally comes to life before your eyes. I'm totally expecting this trip to be a life changing experience.
