We have had a wonderful time closing out this year with all of the year end activities and family coming in to town to visit. Krista and I want to take a moment today to wish you a very Happy New Year! Even though this year has been very difficult and we have experience some heart breaking loss, our hearts still bless the name of the Lord!
Our perspectives on life have changed and at the same time our resolve to live a life that has eternal impact has been strengthened. We take time to count every blessing and know that we have been blessed beyond all measure! We hope and pray that as you ring in the New Year, that God will give you great hope for tomorrow and visions of great things for year to come. God’s promises are beautiful throughout all of scripture, but Jesus’ words in the Gospel of John have become some of my favorite verses of Scripture….
“I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble, but take heart for I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) I love these words because it encourages my heart about eternity and the glorious future we have with Jesus. He is victorious, and we are His!
If you need encouragement as we start this new year, grab a Bible and read the Gospel of John. So much good and so much encouragement can be found there. We love you and are blessed greatly to have you in our lives! Feliz Año Nuevo! (P.S. Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister Kim Rahal…love you Tia!)
All of our ministry in Nicaragua and support for our family comes through donations. So, if you are looking for an opportunity for year end giving, we would be blessed by that! You can click here or click a button below….God Bless you and again HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
