Dear Friends…My apologies for this late post…It got lost in other emails. My sincere apologies!
Although Thanksgiving has come and gone and we’ve quickly moved on to the Christmas season, we wanted to reflect on how thankful we are for each of you. We have much to be thankful for and the source of our gratitude comes from our Heavenly Father.
So many times, when I am down or discouraged, and only thinking of myself, I am reminded to give thanks. Many of my favorite verses from Colossians end with thankfulness, giving thanks and having a thankful heart. When we give thanks to God for all He has done and given us, we are centering our eyes and lives on Hi
A fw things that we are thankful for this year:
We are thankful each of you; your words of encouragement, prayers and financial gifts.
We are thankful for having the opportunity to be closer to our girls and families for a season.
We are thankful for a church family and having opportunities to fellowship and serve.
We are thankful to be able to keep working with AIM from the States. We consider it a joy to use our gifts and abilities for Him and Kingdom work in reaching the unreached in Africa and beyond.
We are thankful for God’s provision as we prayed and waited on Him in so many ways this year.
The time of Advent has come upon us. A tradition for our family, that started when we worked on the Islands, was the lighting of the advent candles the four Sundays before Christmas. As we celebrate the first coming of Christ and wait expectantly for His second coming, we light the candles of hope, peace, joy and love. Each night when we relight the candle of the week, I am mesmerized by the flame from the candle. Jesus came as a light into a dark world. Our hope and prayer is that our lives would reflect His light living in us. We want to be believers that bring Him glory and praise wherever He has placed us.
Our family was together for the first time in four years for Thanksgiving, so thankful! We had the opportunity to go to St. Augustine (Florida) for one night and see the sights. The pictures below are of our time there. If you don’t have our latest family photo prayer card and would like one, please send us your mailing address and we’ll send one out to you.

 But there will be no gloom for her who was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he has made glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.  The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined.  You have multiplied the nation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as they are glad when they divide the spoil.  For the yoke of his burden, and the staff for his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian.  For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult and every garment rolled in blood will be burned as fuel for the fire.  For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – (Isaiah 9:1-6)
There’s a lot going on as we approach the season of our Saviors’ birth.
