Christmas is love in action

Christmas is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.

Five years ago, God put a vision in our hearts for YWAM Ratchaburi. 'YWAM Ratchaburi exists to see every generation in Ratchaburi touched by the love of Jesus'. A vision so broad, but yet so evidently in His plan for us as we look back now at all the different areas that He has lead us to minister to over the past five years. It was evident even in the short span of one month as we ran our yearly Christmas outreach over the month of December.

In the nine Christmas parties and three days of Christmas carolling that we were involved in this past December, we were able to reach out to Burmese laborers, a Karen Hill Tribe, patients and staff in the Ratchaburi hospital, churches and the communities surrounding them, people at the famous floating market in Ratchaburi, government officials, prisoners, schools, and people in Ratchaburi town.

Rich and poor. Well known and unknown. Young and old. Thai and non-Thai.  God loves them all and opens doors for us to minister to them. He truly is amazing and we'd like to thank Him for allowing us to be a part of His plan here. May every generation in Ratchaburi truly be touched by His love. To God be all the glory!
