Bible verses were read and carols sung all to show the East Texans who came to GODTEL that they have a family who cares. "We're trying to cheer their season up by giving them food and gifts and let them know they're loved," Nancy Gentry, Assistant Director explained. GODTEL serves Christmas dinner each year for those who may not have anywhere else to go. It's their ministry for those who may have given up on the holiday. Nancy says, "They remember happier times from their childhood. They regret maybe some decisions they've made that have caused bitter consequences in their lives. They have an idea of what Christmas should be and it's not there for them."
