Christmas Day afternoon was a time of great rejoicing among the newest Disciples of the Way mission, the Congolese families. Pastor Solomon Yadessa and his family, and the Congo families met at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church at 1:00pm on Christmas Day to celebrate the birth of the babe, Jesus, and to celebrate the first Christmas of the Congo families in the United States with food and fellowship.
Following the Christmas Day Worship Service, there was much rejoicing and celebration as the families received gifts purchased with the generous support of members of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Cross of Christ Lutheran Church and many others.
A note from Pastor Solomon Yadessa: “We give Thanks to God for bringing these families to Dallas and to Disciples of the Way Ministries. Thank You also to Pastor Brent McGuire and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church for inviting the Congo’s to worship in the Deaf Chapel at ORLCS and to all those who are blessing the mission and these Refugees with donations to assist them in settling in life Texas!”
