On Friday, December 20th, close to one thousand people gathered at Le Royal Hall in Beit Sahour to celebrate the birth of Christ. It was an amazing event that Bethlehem Bible College and the Shepherd’s Society annually arrange. Different local choirs presented Christmas songs and carols, together with Palestinian Singer Fares Abu Farha, who came from the United States to celebrate Christmas in Bethlehem.

Pastor Nizar Shaheen shared a powerful Gospel message, and offered to pray with people to receive Christ.  Believers who attended were also encouraged. Everyone then enjoyed a time of praise and worship.  BBC teacher Grace Zoughbi and Pastor Johnny Shahwan from Beit  Jala  MC’eed the event. What a joy to celebrate Jesus in our lives and hearts.
