Story number 3 for 25 Dec 2001

(India)–The Christmas holiday is a time when young people in India seem to be more interested in the Gospel. At least that’s that case at Ramabai Mukti Mission.

And, we also of course, have a big festival of food.” Because the celebration lasts for several days, Scott says this causes many of the children to ask questions. “As they begin to hear what Christmas is about, the birth of Jesus Christ and many of them again not coming from Christian families, don’t have clue, so they begin to understand the birth of Christ, and the incarnation of Christ. It’s a process. It takes some time.”
