Happy New Year! We hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. As for us, we are blessed that Leslie’s family gets together on the 24th, and mine on the 25th, so we were able to be with both sides of the family this year.
One of my favorite things about coming to the end of a year is looking back at all God has done that year. It’s amazing how much can happen in 365 days. The biggest thing in our lives was that we got married. It seems just yesterday, but on the 12th this month, we’re celebrating our first anniversary together! We also got to meet so many incredible brothers and sisters in Christ this past year, many of which have become fast friends. We can’t wait to meet so many more in the coming months.
Conversely, one of my favorite things about a new year is all the possibilities that lie in store. This year is shaping up to be an exciting one. We are thrilled to take a brief survey trip to Chile this summer so that we can begin looking for where we would like to live during our first term. Leslie has never been to Chile, and I’m looking forward to showing her the place we will call home in the very near future, Lord willing.
Just a few weeks ago, we sat down and wrote out the dreams that God has placed in our hearts for Chile and the world, big dreams that only He can fulfill. Will you pray that He will enable us to see His vision for this world fulfilled in our lives? I believe every Christian should be captivated by the thought of what God can do with his or her life. I hope each of you reading this believes God can do something great through you, because He can.
Lastly, we are praying God will allow us to finish raising our support within this next year. Would you consider partnering with us so that we may see Chile reached with the gospel? We want more than anything to see Him do something mighty there for HIs name’s sake.
Again, Happy New Year, and may God bless you more abundantly than ever this year!
