Good Cheer December 2020
Children of God, followers of Jesus have a natural desire to spread the incredible goodness of a loving Father. Sometimes we do it with a simple smile and other times we want to shout about it from the rooftops.
It is in this same spirit of sharing the witness of Jesus Christ that Good Cheer December was born four years ago.
Compassion remains the hand that guides our world when we are moved beyond our own comforts to share in the feelings of those that need our love the most.
The Good Cheer December way is so simple and yet so powerful.
It's amazing to visit a place months later and find people still finding joy in the simplicity of that handwritten message that was given to them.
Sharing our faith is not always easy.
At times we have endured tough glares by onlookers and rejection by those we tried to reach with the message of hope in Christ Jesus. But the challenges are expected and even celebrated. ("The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it'- John 1:5)
This year especially presents its own set of challenges with the social distancing protocols and so we will be doing things differently and you are invited to be part of it.
In what has been a challenging year for many here is how you can spread love with us:
Make a small video (40 Seconds long) with the following content:
What got you through 2020 (a faith perspective)
Your message of blessing and hope for 2021 (May 2021 be ..., Let 2021 be..)
Videos received will be compiled and added to 2020's Good Cheer Message.
You can send your video via Salvation Engine's Facebook page www.facebook.com/salvationengine

I personally want to thank God who has remained faithful to me in all things,
when it has proved dark and difficult, he has walked alongside me,
when my strength was failing, he has carried me,
through the mirk , pestilence and arrows he has given me an overflow of joy.
So I give back this joy to others, I pay it forward and I hope that you will join me too.
I also thank my friends who have remained faithful to this cause year after year. True visionaries.
With what looks like little, five pieces of bread and two fish, they have had the faith to believe that so little can go so far. Thank you.
This is a brief history of Good Cheer December
"You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance.
They drop on the pastures of the wilderness,
And the little hills rejoice on every side.
The pastures are clothed with flocks;
The valleys also are covered with grain;
They shout for joy, they also sing." - Psalm 65:11-13
The Lord's Blessing.
