Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Peace be with you!
When we think back to the day when Christ was born, there were shepherds staying in the fields in Bethlehem, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. The angels brought them good news of great joy, “The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!” (Luke 2:11) Jesus Christ who became a man came into the world and opened the gate of the age of grace. He proclaimed that the year of the Lord’s favor already came. Jesus granted us the freedom, honor and the salvation of eternal life, yet he himself became the lamb to bore all the people’s sin.
At the last minute of Jesus’ earthly life, he knew that the humiliation and hardship of the cross was waiting for him. But in order to pay the debt of the sin for us and set us free from the restrain of sin, he insisted walking on the way to Jerusalem and facing the cruel torture of the cross. Mary, who loved Jesus so much that she broke her alabaster jar to pour the ointment on Jesus. Then she bathed his feet with her tears and dried them with her hair.
There are a group of Jesus’ disciples who did the same thing as Mary did. They broke their alabaster jar to offer their money and time to join in the Taiwan Mission. They led hundreds of young people became Christians of next generation. Also, there were many Sowing warriors generously gave their gifts of offering to SOW and supported us to accomplish the Bible study sets of Joshua English version, Esther Arabic version and Job Chinese version which included Mandarin, Cantonese and Hakka languages.

The birth of Jesus Christ became a Christmas gift for us. We would like to invite you to be our Sowing Warrior if you would like to break your alabaster jar for Jesus, too. With $180 or more donation, you may join us to continually produce the Bible study sets of Job English version, Psalms Chinese version and 1st Samuel Chinese version which is already at the final process of producing. You also can purchase our Bible study sets for your family, friends and the small groups of your church. Also, through your donation for Muslim 1000, our Bible study sets can be delivered to Muslim countries and support the mission in Muslim world, so that “We may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater.” (Isaiah 55:10) This can be the Christmas gift that has the eternal meaning to save more souls for God.
Jesus said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10) I wholeheartedly wish you a Merry Christmas! May the radiance of the Lord’s glory reveal in your life to shine beautifully and because of this abundant life in you, the world will be filled with good tidings of Christmas!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
