Dear Friends,

“Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”  Luke 2:10-11

I have a tendency when I’ve read a passage of Scripture many times in the past to skim over certain parts.  As I was reading The Christmas Story in Luke, Chapter two, recently I noticed something that I’m not sure I’d ever assigned much meaning when I had read it in the past.  This is what jumped out at me:

“I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to ALL people.”

All people.  ALL….people.  Not the rich or the poor.  Not the righteous or the unrighteous.  Not those who go to church or those that do not.  Not the intelligent or the unintelligent.  All.  It seems so simple while being so profound.  Every person that is walking or has walked the Earth.  All.

“All” includes the young men and women we serve at LifeQuest.  And if there ever was a group of people that needed to hear “good tidings of great joy” it’s the kids we see week in and week out throughout the year.  It’s the essence of the heart of LifeQuest.  We say we “mentor a future and a hope” but is that really all that different than bringing “good tidings of great joy?”

As you consider who to bless this year-end would you prayerfully consider LifeQuest?  We exist because of the love and generosity of people like you.  Your gifts allow us to continue from day to day, week to week, month to month, to share “good tidings of great joy” to young men and women who desperately need to hear it.

Thank you for your prayers and support throughout 2018.  From the Board, staff, and volunteers that serve at LifeQuest, we wish you and yours a Merry, Merry Christmas.

Serving Together,

John Jones
