A Very Merry Christmas to you all!
I hope this email finds you all enjoying your holidays with dear friends and family! This is such a special time of year, as we gather together and celebrate one of the most momentous occasions our world has ever experienced: the birth of our Savior. And now, thousands of years later, we continue to find hope and peace and joy in this event, the birth of our Savior, the reality of God’s promises for us.
In this months’ newsletter, I reflect a bit on the long-term perspective of ministry–sometimes you get to know people over years and only through the course of many conversations do you see God’s work in their lives. If you take a few minutes to read through my end-of-the-year newsletter, you’ll learn about Tatiana, someone I’ve known for a while now. God is working in Russia, just as he is working in your cities and churches, and I’m happy to share some of the glimpses of what I see Him doing. As always, thank you so much for your prayers!
I pray you all have a wonderful New Year!
