The countdown to Christmas has begun: decorations are going up, advent calendars are being opened, carol services are beginning and you have a special Christmas greeting from Eagles!
Advent is a season of anticipation, of holy waiting for Jesus, the Light of the World, to be born. Eagles have been working tirelessly this year to bring this light to some of the darkest places on Earth. Join with us in celebration of Eagles’ work by sharing one of our favourite stories from 2016 with your church.
The food situation in Malawi remains critical. Earlier this year, Tash Creaney from 24/7 Prayer visited Eagles' work in Chikwawa with Kiera and Hannah from Tearfund’s Youth team. The harsh reality of life for the people they met angered and saddened them. Click here to watch and read their reflections during the visit and please continue to pray for Malawi at this time.
And finally, may we wish you a happy, joy-filled Christmas, and a brilliant new year.
