A Christmas Poem by the Longs
A Christmas poem (to be read to the tune of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas) from our One Mission Society President and first lady, David and Lori Long...shared at our HQ Christmas party:
’Twas Weeks Before Christmas
’Twas weeks before Christmas, and all through our place,
Every creature was stirring at a crazy pace.
There was so much to do, there were projects galore,
Scads of countries to reach – there was no time to snore!
As we looked at our list that we’d only begun,
We wondered, ‘How will these projects get done?’
Articles for Outreach need to be written,
Then sent from headquarters to Canada & Britain.
There are nationals to shepherd and pastors to train,
Students to fund, churches to sustain.
Reaching the young, middle-aged, and retired,
So much time and preparation is required.
Work teams, prayer teams, evangelism too,
During these times, hearts for nationals grew.
We have missionaries to train, fund, and mobilize,
Can we please take a break to socialize?
Prayer letters, receipt letters, year-end, and more,
The mail room is full from ceiling to floor!
Year-end donations are flooding in
In response, many thank yous, hallelujahs, and an amen!
There were needs overseas in so many nations,
We needed to go and establish good relations.
But how could all of this ever get done?
So, we bowed our heads and asked God’s Son.
Then out of our prayers, there arose such a clatter,
We sprang from our offices to see what was the matter.
When what to our wondering eyes should appear,
But volunteers and partners, who said, “Don’t you fear,
We’ll help by working closely with you,”
And headquarters staff worked tirelessly too.
So this little poem is to simply to say thanks,
To all in our One Mission Society ranks.
As we end these last months, as your first lady and pres,
We have undoubtedly, by you, been abundantly blessed.
We’re grateful, we love you, and we simply must say,
‘We couldn’t have done it without you, in any way!’

Here is one of many of Dr. Duewel's poem. This is what he shared on the program:
ARE YOU HIDING THE WORD OF GOD?
You have the words which the Savior gave,
You have the book which millions crave,
You have the Truth which alone can save—
Are you hiding the Word of God?
Millions are groping in sin’s dark night,
Searching the pathway to truth and right.
You in your hands have the only Light—
Are you hiding the Light of God?
Millions engage in a deadly strife,
Foes of the soul and of God are rife;
Millions are losing the fight for life—
Are you hiding the Sword of God?
The need still exists though seasons roll,
Millions are fainting far short their goal,
Millions tonight have a hungry soul—
Are you hiding the Bread of God?
Millions haste on to a Christless tomb
Treading the pathways of sin and gloom,
You, if you will, can avert their doom—
Will you give them the Word of God?
--Wesley L. Duewel
(Allahabad, India; December 22, 1943)
