A Special Christmas Note to Your Family
Notwithstanding the recent difficulties we are facing in China, we have had another great year spreading the knowledge of Jesus and rescuing the vulnerable all over the world. I really love that God has called all of us to some of the most unreached areas of the world. What an adventure it is going with all of you into these places as ambassadors of Jesus! Well, Harmony Outreach is not just one thing—it is our US staff, it is our partners in Vietnam and Ethiopia and it is our teams in both Cambodia and Vietnam. And so at this year end we want to send a special greeting from the rest of our team to your family:
From Pastor Song in Saigon, Vietnam
Dear Pastor John Bentley, your family and your team!
On behalf of all members of United Gospel Outreach Church, I sincerely give thanks to members of Harmony Outreach, who helped, prayed and supported, stood by our side in extending the Kingdom of God in Vietnam. Your support is abundantly full of anointing of the Holy Spirit. In this years 2015, during three quarters, there have been 13,547 people accepting to believe Jesus Christ and 1,401 baptized in water so far. We want you to know the information because it is as a reward that God gave not only to us but also to you in Christmas days. We believe that a precious gift we always desire is that many people acknowledge and believe God. May God give you, your family, and everyone from Harmony Outreach a joyful and peaceful Christmas 2015 and New Year 2016 full of blessings!
May our coordination glorify God’s Name and be fruitful.

Thanks God for what he has done and being doing in our life! Christ is the only reason for Christmas. May Christmas lives in our daily life.
We just celebrated Christmas yesterday. We were very joyful to give praises and an honor to the Lord Jesus Christ. There were many kinds of performance from all ages, we had also games and blessing lucky draw. Everyone has to bring their own food, we also prepare some foods from Harmony staffs. We’ve shared food together with the Church and nothing were left over. Dalin could not join the celebration with us because she is having a cold. I pray she will get well soon.
P.K. And from all of us at team Harmony USA, we just want to say Merry Christmas and we love you. As we contemplate Jesus birth, we can’t help but get excited about the soon return of Jesus to sit on the throne of David as prophesied in Isaiah 2:
Now it will come about that In the last days The mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it. And many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; That He may teach us concerning His ways And that we may walk in His paths.” For the law will go forth from Zion And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war. Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the LORD. (Isaiah 2:2-5)
