Merry Christmas! I love this time of year. The snow has already been falling in Colorado for a couple months, people are in a giving mood, time is set aside to spend with family, gifts are given, food is enjoyed, Christmas carols are heard everywhere you go, and lights sparkle in the cool winter nights air (at least in Colorado). Even in our public malls Jesus is proclaimed as the Savior of the world. Granted, for some this is a difficult time of year. Maybe they have lost a loved one, and they miss them deeply during this Holiday season. Maybe life over all is void of joy and peace for you. Please reach out to someone. Call us at IMM, and we will gladly do all that we can to lift you up in the hope that can be had by all in Jesus.

God loves you ,and we want you to feel that love in the depths of your heart. Reach out to us, and we will gladly extend a hand of love back to you. Some say this is a bad time of the year because of the commercialism of Christmas. But I have to ask you, isn’t the excess worth it in order to have all the good that comes with it? I think it is! I think that going a little (even a lot) overboard in all that is marketed this time of year is worth the trade off of having all that we gain – no other time of year do people give as they do during this time. That is a godly trait being acted on. I love to see people giving and proclaim Christ as the Savior of the world. It is beautiful. In the midst of commercialism or even the pain in your life, I challenge you to reach out and give. Give your life to people, share God”s love with them. Share out of your own need and see what happens. Share from a joyful heart, and joy will come back to you many fold. At IMM we are hard at work preparing for 2012. We have 8 “Operation One Billion” Bible School units purchased, and we will place them on the mission field in 2012. We already have 5 missions trips on the schedule with several more in the works. January is normally when we schedule most of our missions trips for the coming year. If we can serve your group by planning a mission trip for you, give us a call and get in ahead of the January rush. We expect to do between 12 and 15 mission trips in 2012. From our family to yours – MERRY Christmas! Seth Dunn – Director of IMM
