As we head into the Christmas season, we are so thankful again to be reminded of just how much God loved us in sending His Son Jesus to Earth. It’s a special time to celebrate as Christians, and we certainly hope all of you will have a very blessed Christmas season.
As for us, we couldn’t be more excited about taking the gospel to Chile, and we hope to be doing that fairly soon! These past few months, God has been so good to us in giving us several new supporting churches. We’ve been overwhelmed by the speed at which our support has suddenly increased, as we are now over 30% of our needed amount (And who knows, by the time you get this, it may be even more)! We’re praying that if God will allow, that the rest will come in within the next year so that we can leave for the field. It may sound like a big request, but with God, nothing is impossible. Would you consider partnering with us so that we can reach Chile with the gospel? And if we aren’t scheduled to be in your church, would you consider having us in to present the ministry?
On another note, while we’ve been elated at how God has been providing, we were also devastated this month by the news that Leslie’s mom has stage 4 cancer. When her parents went to the doctor originally, there was somewhat of a misunderstanding, and they believed that radiation and chemo would be able to treat her completely. As shocking as it was to find out that the cancer was more advanced than they thought, she’s undergoing treatments and there is still hope. We’re praying she will make a full recovery, and we know that God has her in His hands and that we serve the Great Physician. We also rejoice that she knows that as well and has trusted in Jesus Christ for her salvation. Come what may, our hope is in Him.
Please continue to pray for us as we travel. God has been so good to us and we are thankful for HIs provision. Thank you all for your continued support, both in prayers and finances. May God richly bless you, and have a Merry Christmas!
