You didn’t see Evan and Grant in any of the photos as usual. We miss them beyond words! They were making their own Christmas memories together with extended family and friends in Ohio this year! Grant got to travel to Indiana to be with many of his cousins while Evan was working. We really look forward to them coming in the Spring, Lord willing.

Happy New Year 2017! Thanks for your support and prayers all through 2016. We felt them and can’t thank each of you enough. May God bless you through the year ahead! We serve a great and awesome God who also cares for us so tenderly.

“Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”
– John Wesley

“But to do good and to communicate forget not:
for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.”
Hebrews 13:16
