Dear Friends,

Like the family of Bethlehem on the first Christmas, the Pinto family also received, during this time of gifts and surprises, their third grandchild. His parents named him Malachi, which means "my messenger." One more reason to be grateful and to rejoice. 
In the same way, there is joy and jubilee as we celebrate the birth of our beloved Savior who, born in a humble manger, came to bring us salvation and forgiveness of our sins.
On behalf of our Encuentro ministry we want to thank you - our supporters and friends - for allowing us to send the good news of love and hope through radio and TV. Receive this message as a token of gratitude to each one of you. 
Our staff wishes you a Merry Christmas and a New Year full of abundant blessing. May the Lord prosper you every day and bless your work, so that together we can reach many homes, hearts and nations with the message of hope.
Isaiah 9:6 says, "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Ernesto Pinto and the Encuentro team.
