“I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
“This is the mostwonderful time of the year!” Pease, Joy, Love… For some of us, it’s time to figure out if we’ll send out Christmas cards, letters, family pictures, or all three.
Our experience in Roatan and especially in this Christmas Season has been a great blessing, because throughout 2019 we have seen, as the power of God has manifested in our family and in our Church, projects that we have achieved and the opportunity that we will have when we receive the new year 2020 to reach the proposed goals.
We can say that God has really been so good, that he has allowed and given us the opportunity to minister in his Kingdom and through our gifts make a difference in the lives of many people.
However, there is something I want to highlight and cannot go unnoticed.
Everything, absolutely everything, what has happened in our ministry, would not have been possible without your continuously prayers, every day, every week and every month, as well as your financial support, for which we express all our gratitude.
And what a better gift can we receive at this time, than the opportunity that each of you gives us to serve the Lord in the Island of Roatan.
Thank you, thank you.
Personally we are fine, Stephen and Kelly enjoying the Christmas holiday, Kara and I involved in the chores of the Church and home.
Stephen is finishing High School, in June he will graduate and will be ready to go to University, we are praying for opportunities for Him, and may God be guiding him in this new stage of his life which will be very different.
Kelly is 12 years old, and it is now in 7th grade, and she is doing very well in her schooling.
We would like to wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season, filled with Love, Joy, Hope, Pease and laughter!
May God continue richly bless you on Christmas Season as you adore and praise our savior Jesus Christ the Messiah.
On the financial side, we continue to be very positive and to pray and praise God with faith and thanksgiving. We also ask you to continue to pray about our finances and that for the rest of the year our support will stabilize and be sufficient to cover our needs. At the moment our balance is very low.
