As we enter into the Advent Season for 2013, I began to reflect back on what has
been going on at Love INC. We have so many things to be thankful for in this organization. We’ve been able to assist several families with various needs. We
have clients who are beginning to change their lifestyles. They are taking baby
steps and have a long way to go, but they are heading in the right direction.
SPECIAL POINTS OF
We are so grateful for all the contributors who step forward to help Love INC out.
Because of their generosity and their love for Christ, we have been able to continue this ministry.

A message from the
Executive Director
Throughout this year we have had our ups and downs like everyone else. I think
what makes us strong and keeps us strong is our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Christmas is a time to celebrate Jesus’ birth and to be thankful that we have Christ
in our hearts and lives. Be thankful for the freedom of religion. There are many
countries that would be jailed or put to death because of their belief in the One and
Only God.

Though centuries have passed since Christ was born,
May worship still the Living Lord of men,
Our Savior, Jesus, Babe of Bethlehem.— Hutchings
“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their
flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord
shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be
afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the
town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”
