Things are pretty quiet at the TEAM offices this week. As they should be.

In a few days, the new year will arrive with a flurry and we will rush to meet it. There will be plenty of time for all that, later.

For now, it’s time to be still. Today is the final moment of Advent, and we join with Christians around the world as they inhale and wait for the clock to strike midnight, so we can all shout:

Joy to the world!

Merry Christmas, from the staff and missionaries of TEAM.
