Can you imagine living in darkness? No sun. No lights to switch on and off. Just darkness. But then, just as Isaiah wrote, there was a GREAT light. He is the Light of the World. And His name is Jesus Christ. Jesus gives special meaning to the Thanksgiving season now and the Christmas season to come. Love the Light during the next WE KIDS!

Isaiah 7:14 is this week's Bible verse to remember:
Therefore the LORD, Himself,
will give you a sign.
Behold, a virgin will be
with child and bear a Son.
And she will call His name Emmanuel.
God is giving us "a sign"? And "a Son"? "Emmanuel"? What's this about? Learn more about Him during the next WE KIDS. Here's some talk from me about Him.
E-couragement (part 4) from a long-time WE KIDS listener and mother of six in North Carolina: "...Mr. Nick, Just thought you might like a little update on some of your former marchers : ) Rachel is going to be 18 in March. She is currently a high school Sr. but has been going to the local community college since her Jr. yr. Please pray for her because she says she doesn't know what she wants to do. She is currently working on her Associates in Engineering. She loves to build things with electricity. She has been asking God to guide her but still feels unsure exactly which way to go. She thinks she wants to be an electrician. Unlike her older siblings who have always known what they wanted to do she feels lost. Then their is my baby boy, Robert who just started the 9th grade. At 5'10 he is really no baby anymore but he is a mamma's boy : ) He will be 15 in December. He too like Rachel does not have a clue what he wants to do with his life. I've told them both they have plenty of time." [Bea, with launches like you're giving Rachel and Robert, chances are good that God will find a way to use them in the future. Thanks again for another update. I'm praying with y'all.]
At home in Red Bluff, my heart is still warmed after passing through the memories of Veteran's Day. It's because all of our service people gave some, but some of them gave all. So with respect and gratitude, we remember that our freedom in America wasn't free nor will it ever be without cost. My grandfather Fraser served in the US Army in WW I, as did my father in WW II. Both lived to pass along their lives to us kids, grands, and great-grands. Now, we're teaching new little lives to honor the old.
We're also teaching new little lives to love and honor God. One good way to help do that is through WE KIDS. So here comes the next one!

PS—The next WE KIDS exit-machine is shiny and fast, I'm told. And it comes with a driver. What do you think it could be?
