A CHRISTMAS GREETING FROM THE AIM PRESIDENT
Dear Friends in Christ,
The prophecy of Simeon breaks forth with holy zeal at the purification of Jesus in the temple. Luke 2:29-32 records his peon of praise:
Lord, now I can die in peace!
As You promised me,
I have seen the Saviour
You have given to all people
He is a light to reveal God to the nations
And He is the glory of Your people Israel!
This is the Advent Season, our especially suitable time to tell everyone everywhere
about the Light that has come to dwell among us.
The example of William Carey, including translating the Bible into 12
languages in India, compels us to finish the job. India must be saved. Jesus is
revealing himself in this nationís darkest corners through the word of messengers
equipped with fluency in 4 or 5 languages from birth. These oral learners
identify on the same economic level as their unreached hearers with impact beyond
our capacity to describe.
So much of Asia is alive with the task of mission, preaching and deep
impact. Now is the time to declare the Gospel, since Jesus is the singular
Luminary, completely set apart from every other light. "Life itself was in Him,
and this life gives light to everyone. The light shines through the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it" (John 1:4, 5).
Our fall teams returned this week to report so many in Asia are joining
the family of Christ. These new believers require training and encouragement in
the Scriptures. Enclosed in this mailing is a map with our Leadership Seminar
ministry plans. Please pray and considering giving as the Lord enables.
You, our faithful stewardship team, are required. You are demonstrating
your determination with fervent prayer, encouraging each other, and sending out
more messengers in increasing numbers.
We love and cherish you. Together we are lighting up this very dark
world, enabled by the Spirit of God. The tongues and the tribes and the peoples
and the nations are coming to Jesus!
Dr. David L. Robbins
