2013: A look back
With Grateful Hearts
I pray that you have been enjoying this time of the year - the anticipation that Advent brings of our coming Savior. It is an anticipation of celebrating that first Christmas, but also of His return - the Word made flesh come to bring His Truth and Light!
As we celebrate, we pause to give thanks for this year and we praise God for His many blessings. 2013 has been a year of blessing upon blessing, and grace upon grace. We see the hand of God at work in Chile, in the girls at the House of Hope, and in our hearts as well. We wanted to share with you some of those blessings and give the Lord the praise He deserves.
We know that you receive a lot of requests for your time, attention, love and your wallets at this time of the year. As you evaluate your opportunities - will you remember us? We need your prayer, we need your service on our work teams, we need your financial support, we need your advocacy on our behalf. We praise God for the blessing of you!
We have that same "Advent excitement" as we prepare to turn the last page in our 2013 planners and look forward in anticipation to the great things He will do in 2014.
