"About that time Caesar Augustus ordered a census to be taken throughout the Empire. This was the first census when Quirinius was the governor of Syria. Everyone had to travel to his hometown to be accounted for. So Joseph went from the Galilean town of Nazareth up to Bethlehem in Judah, David's hometown, for the census. As a decendant of David he had to go there. He went with Mary, his fiancee, who was pregnant.
While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. She gave birth to a son, her firstborn. She wrapped Him in a blanket and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the hostel.

A Special Note To Parents of Youth
From Luke, Youth Director: God has been doing an awesome work in my life and in the lives of many others in recent weeks and months. Last July, I went to a life-changing training event called “Lead The Cause University” with four other students. I have always had a strong interest in evangelism but during that week God gave a bigger vision for His Kingdom and a real passion to reach the lost with His love. I knew that things could not go back to “normal”.
