1. Mark began with the idea that Jesus being born into our world was something like a missions journey.  What do you think about this idea?

  2. Mark also brought up the idea of sponsoring a child in some way.  Do you or someone you know sponsor a child?  What do you feel would be the most valuable part of sponsoring? 

  3. Read Matthew 9:35-38 and take a few moments to pray for the Guskjolens (Jim & Colleen) as they struggle with health concerns, and also for the Hazzards as they continue to meet with missionaries in the Latin America region.

  4. Discuss one or two ways your family might make an investment in someone else during this Christmas season.
