There were so many people calling out for gifts that we were constantly running between the van to collect the gifts, and back to the crowds on the sidewalks to hand them out. It was incredible to see how Muslim children, mothers, and fathers were rejoicing in the Christmas celebrations and eager to receive a gift in the name of Jesus. The message that Jesus is the Reason for the Season was being delivered to all in attendance.
As we continued handing out gifts while we made our way down the main street, we had two Muslim girls join us in handing our Christmas gifts. They were parade marshals, but they were so touched by our project that they decided to join us in the work of the Lord. What a testimony! God was touching hearts right there on the main street of Nazareth!
