Christmas Message 2018

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven.” Matthew 5: 14-16.

We live in a world that is full of conflicts, wars, darkness and hate. We are all burdened with bad news almost on a daily basis. Where are we today with all of what is happening around us? What is our message at Christmas time and for the New Year?

We always like to talk about things, put together plans and even give solutions to any problem in this world, but the real challenge we face is how to put the word into practice. Jesus said, “You are the Light of the World.” It is not about the word, but about the action. By being the light, we can make the change and not just by talking about it. This is the witness that we always need to carry.

As this year comes to an end, we look back and are thankful for God. HE always blesses us with enough strength to overcome the Negatives with Positives, Hatred with Love, and Darkness with Light with our simple message of Refusing to be an Enemy.

So far this year, we have had 9,804 visitors on the farm, including volunteers from all over. All were inspired by our story, went back home inspired and encouraged to become change-makers in their own communities.

Thank you so much for your friendship, for your prayers, for your solidarity and for your support.

We wish you all and your families a Merry Christmas and a happy and blessed New Year 2019. May God give you, and us, the power to continue to be change-makers. Let us walk together in this coming New Year with Faith, with Love and with Hope.

Blessings and Salaam,
Daoud & Family
