Christmas 2023

The real meaning of Christmas often gets lost in the rush of the season: the shopping, the parties, the baking and the wrapping of presents. But the essence of the season is that God gave us the greatest gift of all time—His own Son, Jesus Christ!

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders and He will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.“ (Isaiah 9:6)

The Real Meaning of Christmas

by Judy Bowman, 2023
In today’s busy world, it’s easy to lose sight of the real meaning of Christmas on that very special night.

We shop, decorate and rush to greet friends, yet we miss the truth of Christmas when it all comes to an end.

With all the lights, glitter and ribbons of gold, we forget about the Child, born in a stable long ago.

The children look for Santa hoping for candy and gifts, never thinking that Jesus is the real gift.

When we finally look up into the bright night sky, we don’t see a sleigh but a star burning so high.

Yes, that bright star is a reminder of that first Christmas long ago, that Jesus is the gift of love that everyone needs to know.

Our 30th year of ministry has been filled to overflowing and we want to thank God, for His faithfulness, mercy, grace and kindness. We also want to say thank you to our Lord for blessing us and using us as we have shared His love with hundreds of people this year and thousands since 1993.

Thank you, Lord, for never leaving or forsaking us. We pray that Your will be done in our lives and may we be an instrument of love, grace and compassion to everyone we meet.


We have planned three primary bicycle mission trips, plus the Lord has opened several opportunities for Judy to speak in churches, schools and women’s retreats in several states next year also. I’ll keep you posted where we’ll be and hope you can join us.

Spring Mission Trip: March 15 – April 5

-Florida We will be bicycling in Hudson, Lady Lakes and Titusville, bicycling and witnessing throughout these communities and connecting with local churches.

PLEASE pray for me and our teams as we venture out on the highways and byways of the USA. We would be blessed if you could support our faith-based ministry financially so we can continue to spread the Good News everywhere we go.
