The New Testament Baptist Church of Baghdad celebrated Christmas this year and enjoyed a tremendous blessing on Dec. 25, 2008. The church erected a large tent and put the gifts under the Christmas tree. On Dec. 25 the children and their parents came to church to attend the service and the celebration. The program exalted the Lord, Jesus and told the story of His birth and the reason for His coming to Earth. The people sang Christmas hymns and thanked the Lord for the freedom the Lord brought them to be able to worship Him without fear in Baghdad.
At the end of the program children came forward and received the gifts. They were told that these gifts are from the Sunday school children in America to you. We are grateful for everyone who contributed toward this project. This program was broadcast on our radio whereby about 100,000 people heard the Christmas story and learned more about the Prince of Peace.
