A Special Christmas Message From BLF USA Director Rory Clark ...

Painting: Simeon and Jesus by Russian Painter Andrey Shishkin
Simeon and Jesus
by Russian Painter Andrey Shishkin

"Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel."      [Luke 2:29-32]

Mary and Joseph stood marveling, with Simeon's words ringing in their ears. Holding "Yaweh is salvation" in his arms, Simeon described Jesus' mission as encompassing "all peoples."

God with us in Matthew 1:23 is the same death-conquering King of Matthew 28 who receives "all authority on heaven and on earth" and promises: "I will be with you always, even until the end of the age."
His commission to "disciple all peoples" includes those peoples living in the places we've been praying for these last months. They are scattered across Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, Oceania, Asia and Africa, where half of the continent's unreached people groups live in countries where French is used. Globally, French is a bridge language to perhaps 1,200 others.

Please pray for French speakers who are joining in King Jesus' work as a "light for revelation to the Gentiles" across the globe and for those who are seeking to come alongside them in helpful ways.

May God richly bless you as you pray and praise Him this week
and as you celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

For BLF Canada ...

- Pray for French Canadians during this Christmas season:

--For non-believers, that God will use the holidays to bring about spiritual awareness, so that people will seek after Him

--For believers, that they will celebrate Christmas in a way that worships the Lord in spirit and in truth

--For churches, that they will clearly present the gospel
