Battle Briefing | January 2023

The echoes of banging hammers building mangers in homes, churches, and community centers across the state and beyond brought 2022 to a close.  

It is a privilege to share in making an impact on families who kept Christ in front of Christmas through Let’s Build a Manger!® kits and The Manger Build®. 

We sent Let’s Build a Manger!® kits to 27 states. 

14 churches placed orders for kits for their church body. 

Crosslink Community Church in Harrisonburg, VA, placed an order for 168 kits! 

Let’s Build a Manger!® was featured on The World and Everything in It Podcast when WORLD commentator, Whitney Williams, shared her family’s experience. 

“Fun was had, Jesus was shared, and screentime was staved off for yet another hour.” 

I am incredibly grateful that manger-building in the Young family is now multi-generational. Our son Tim built a manger with his son Owen this year for the first time! 

Several churches hosted a Manger Build® for their families and others in their communities. Pastor Fred Cox of Clifford Baptist Church held The Manger Build® event at a community center and reached 50 families with the story of Christ! 

These are just a sampling of the testimonies made possible through your prayers and giving!
