CHRISTMAS FROM A-FAHR-Live Nativity will honor memory of Pastor Fahr.  In a gesture of admiration, the members of First Trinity Lutheran Church are dedicating this year’s Live Nativity presentation to the memory of Pastor Duane Fahr.

            Pastor Fahr served the members of First Trinity for nearly eight years. His unexpected death in April sent shock waves through the congregation and community.

            Beginning in 2007, Pastor Fahr and the members of First Trinity presented a Live Nativity for Bloomfield and surrounding communities.  Pastor Fahr was instrumental in writing, planning and directing each special performance.  As time drew near to begin planning for this years event, first thoughts for many were, “can we do this without Pastor?”  Members knew Pastor Fahr would have wanted them to carry on – telling the story of the birth of Jesus Christ.  Organizers felt like this was the perfect time to honor the man who meant so much to many in Bloomfield.  “This is an opportunity for us to pay tribute and to remember him,” said Richard Eisenhauer, one of many organizers of the event.

            It was always important to Pastor that there be no fee for this presentation.  “It is our privilege to share the love of Jesus with you,” Pastor would say.  He wanted the Live Nativity to be a ‘gift’ to the community.  This year’s presentation, Christmas From A-Fahr, will include segments from each of the past presentations – one last ‘gift’ from Pastor Fahr.  Several of Pastor’s family members will participate as they have in previous years.  The Live Nativity will also feature volunteers in costume to reenact the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, an assortment of live animals, many familiar hymns, special duets and solos.

Christmas From A-Fahr will be presented at the Harm and Tulleys Event Center in Bloomfield, on Sunday, November 18th at 4:00 p.m.  Refreshments will be served afterwards.  There is no fee or free will offering.  Everyone is welcomed to join in this special celebration of our Savior’s birth.  This Live Nativity is presented by First Trinity, Bloomfield and Golgotha, Wausa.  There is no heat in the building so please dress accordingly.  You may want to bring a blanket to sit on as the bleachers can be chilly.

THE FOLLOWING LETTER HAS BEEN RECEIVED FROM THE BECKENDORF’S:

            Dear Friends at Immanuel,

            Thank you for continuing to support our ministry to the Khwe people.  We appreciate your gifts to Lutheran Bible Translators. We know that supporters like you are what makes our work here possible.

            We are all doing well, and are pleased that the work is moving forward.  Since most Khwe people cannot read their own language – in fact, have nothing in Khwedam which to read – we are excited about the opportunity later this month to record the portions of Scripture we have finished thus far.  We will then put the recordings onto a radio-like unit for people to listen to out in the villages.  After we test this in two or three villages we will see how effective they are, and whether we need to buy more of these ‘radios’ for other communities.  We hope and pray this will be part of the answer we are looking for in getting God’s Word out to the communities.

            Thank you again for your faithful support of us and our work.

            God Bless,

                        Rev. Tim and Lisa Beckendorf

                                    Aaron & Andrew
