This Christmas, we remember that Christ comes into the world with no place to lay his head. We know that at the hour of his
birth Mary and Joseph are far from home, and must rely on the mercy of strangers to shelter them in their hour of need. A manger – literally a feeding trough for animals —becomes the cradle of the King of Kings. The creator of the universe comes into the world humbly and to serve.
Everyday at FOCUS North America, we encounter families in need. Some come to us seeking shelter. Others are in need of food and clothing. That’s why we strive to remember the Nativity story not just during Christmas, but throughout the year. We look to see the humble Christ child in everyone we serve—the homeless, the poor, the hungry, the sick.
Thank you for all the support you’ve shown to FOCUS and those we’ve served this year.
