It's beginning to look a lot like CHRIST in the village!

BROKEN - It's a word we use often in the village. We see brokenness everywhere. Yet, we see it most when we look in the mirror. If not for Christ, we would remain broken cisterns that can hold no water. BUT GOD, in His amazing grace, mends the cracks and fills these jars of clay with The Living Water - Jesus Christ. It is the saving knowledge of Christ that binds up our brokenness and the brokenness of Marks Village. Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!  
It's beginning to look a lot like Christ in the village.  

 JOY TO THE WORLD THE LORD HAS COME!


The streets of Marks Village were filled with the joy of the Lord yesterday as carolers proclaimed, "THE LORD HAS COME!"  Volunteers and Bible Club kids merrily made their way through the village delivering bags of oranges and the hope of Christ.  As we caroled, the crowd grew. The afternoon ended with feasting on hot chocolate and cookies served by neighborhood women at our new facility. Certainly it was a bit like heaven - people of every tribe and nation worshiping God and feasting on His goodness.  

DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A TREEHOUSE?


God is so incredible, so good, so faithful! He has given us a temporary facility, AKA The Treehouse. But, a tree house doesn't build itself. WE NEED YOUR HELP. This Friday and Saturday, December 16th & 17th, are WORK DAYS at The Treehouse to paint, lay carpet, construct rooms, and more. No experience needed, just willing hearts and helping hands. Click https://oaktreeministries.org/events/2016/12/16/new-building-work to join The Treehouse Reno Gang.

PRAYING: God's peace for the Brookins kids as they transition out of the village and into a new home - many changes all at once. God's provision to have The Treehouse fully functioning by January 8th. God's prompting in neighborhood women's hearts to engage in paths of dignity with circles of support. God's penetrating the souls of the village men to act like men.
