Development – God grows us as we participate in the growth of others… He is GOOD!
Christmas Prayer Letter
With the generous help of Megan, Karen and I got the Christmas 2008 Mustard Seed in the mail last week! We have included an invitation for people to join our financial support team in this letter. Pray for appropriate response.
Alpha Marriage Course
We celebrated the completion of the Alpha Marriage Course at John and Julie Hamers’ house on Friday. One of the big surprises that awaited us was one couple sharing how the course impacted their marriage in an amazing way! God is so good to continue to equip His Saints to walk in the good works He has prepared for us all!
As part of my development focus this year, I am working to develop some of the leaders around me. Last week I had an amazing conversation with one man, which gave me the opportunity to not only share some clear insights about the Gospel of Christ, but to have those insights made real to me in an entirely new way! It is SO TRUE that as we share what God has given us, we are the main recipients of the blessing! Our God is GOOD and His love truly endures FOREVER!
Our girls complete school for 2008 this Friday. Our travel schedule over the Christmas holidays will be minimal – basically limited to Guelph and area! Both Karen and I are looking forward to times of extended interaction with our girls, for reading opportunities, and for social interaction with our GBC church family (and Karen’s family too!). ‘Tis the season to rest a bit!
Many blessings to you as sing… “Joy to the world, the LORD is come, let earth receive her KING! Let EVERY heart prepare HIM room, and heaven and nature sing…”
