THE BRONX - More than 150 children in need received a Christmas miracle this morning at the New Life Outreach International Church thanks to the generosity of Councilman Fernando Cabrera, who is also the church's pastor.

Each child in attendance at services received a present from the pastor and many of the children performed a musical celebration about the meaning of Christmas.

The children said they had been practicing for the performance for weeks.

Many of the parents said that they were glad all of the children received gifts since they may not have if it wasn't for Cabrera.

Cabrera said that the gift of giving is the best way to celebrate Christmas.
