A LETTER FROM THE FEBC PRESIDENT
“All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’—which means, ‘God with us” (Matthew 1:22-23).
The people of Israel waited many years to see the fulfillment of God’s promise that a Son would be born and be a tangible presence of God among them. For generations they looked to that promise to bring hope and comfort. When Jesus was born and the promise finally fulfilled, the rejoicing was so great that the skies resounded with angels praising God.
There are 3.2 billion people in the world who have still not been reached and are waiting to hear the Good News that Immanuel, “God with us,” came to earth to provide our redemption and change the world.
In this season of rejoicing when we celebrate our Savior’s birth, how we long for all people to know this great joy. Please join me in praying that the Lord will open doors, so the message of the Gospel can be shared throughout the nations.
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
President and CEO
