But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law. -Galatians 4:4
Thank you to everyone who sent cards and gifts as well as our faithful supports throughout the year. As we reflect on the challenges and blessings of 2019 we are reminded that God works all things to our benefit according to His time. We eagerly await what He has for 2020.
November happenings: We began the month of November with our annual harvest dinner. Isaiah Nuno, assistant pastor of Northland Baptist, was our guest speaker. Many of our folks have known Isaiah since his days on staff at the Bill Rice Ranch West
Branch in Williams, AZ.
For our family, the really big event of the month or, more accurately the year, was our son Micah’s wedding. We all met up in Fargo, ND for a few busy, yet fun-filled days. Steve was honored to officiate the ceremony.
Another annual high-light was our testimony and praise service. We are always encouraged to hear how God has worked in lives of our folk over the past year!
December events: As usual the month of December was full of celebration. Each of our Sunday School classes had their parties, and our teens held an afterglow. Our church was asked back to carol and present a Christmas pageant for the community tree lighting. Both the ladies and mens groups enjoyed their respective Christmas parties. And our homeschool co-op sang for our elderly and a local nursing home before having their party. The church Christmas celebrations culminated in the children’s presentation of the Christmas program. Sherry worked with them for two months to put together a wonderful service.
Manny and his wife Abbie were able tovisit for the week before Christmas allowing us all to hear Manny preach again. Sherry and Abbie decorated cookies and the rest of us really enjoyed eating them! Then, on Christmas Eve, Molly, Josh, Sherry and Steve
took one of our Christian college graduates from the reservation and road the Polar Express. This has been on our bucket list for quite a while. And it didn’t disappoint!
