Christmas in Nazareth is a very unique and special time, as Israelis from all walks of life descend upon the town of Nazareth to experience the beauty and heritage of the celebration of Christ’s birth. Christmas is virtually non-existent in Israel, and Israelis are very curious about what makes this celebration so special. This presents us here at HomeJTK with a very strategic opportunity to share the Gospel to unreached Israelis and to shine the life of Christ unto those who do not know him.
On Christmas day we will be participating in the annual Christmas parade in Nazareth, to bless thousands of children and their parents with special Christmas gifts, containing a box of chocolates, a toy, as well as a magnet stating that, “Jesus is the Reason for the Season.” Among the more than twenty-thousand participants at the parade, there will be Israeli Jews, Muslim, as well as nominal Christians, and it will be a time of sharing why Jesus was born into this world, and how His death and resurrection provided a way for the world to be saved.
In the run-up to the Christmas parade, we will also be distributing more than 2000 evangelistic calendars among the homes, businesses, schools, and hospitals of Nazareth. These calendars share the message that Jesus is the only way to be saved and reconciled to the Father, and every month a specific focus is placed on a passage from Psalm 23. These calendars go out into all levels and places of society, and serve as a very effective tool to change hearts and to lead people to Christ.
Another special project that we will be conducting during Christmas is to distribute special food boxes, containing nutritious and long-lasting food products, to more than 150 poor Christian families in Nazareth and Haifa. These food boxes will also contain special items in celebration of Christmas, and to declare the truth that Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
I would like to invite you to stand with us in touching the hearts of Israelis this Christmas, and sharing the message of Jesus Christ with them, through partnering with us in our projects. No seed sown is too small or too big, and will doubtlessly produce much fruit.
