Merry Christmas!

This year has brought some new experiences for us. We are now empty nesters! We miss our children, but our full schedules have helped us adapt very well. Trevor and Stephanie are loving their life in Colorado, especially being involved with the various ministries at Rocky Mountain Bible Church. Jeff and Rachel are still in Dallas and are thankful to live where it’s not so cold! Each of them enjoys their work and stays very busy. 

It’s been a good year for us and we’ve both had good health. After all these years, we still love being at Frontier and the many opportunities it gives us to impact the lives of students. However, Christmas time is always a welcome break from the hustle and bustle!

Since marrying 40+ years ago, this will be our first Christmas with just the two of us. We have always been in Mississippi with Kathy's family, or celebrating with our children at home. We are decorating together, cooking together, and looking forward to sharing Christmas day together. We are so grateful for the years God has given us! Each new stage is another adventure!

Recently we’ve been blessed by Psalm 31:19, 24:

Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the LORD.

We both thank God for giving us such a perfect mate and friend whom we have enjoyed being with day-by-day-by-day through the years. This is a constant reminder to us of God’s amazing goodness.

We thank God for you — another obvious way that we see His goodness. The times are countless that you have encouraged us through the years at just the right times. Your gifts, prayers, caring words, and wise advice have been a blessing that is immeasurable.

We thank God most of all for sending His son, Jesus — the most precious gift we have ever received. He proved His great love by giving His life that we can know Him personally. What greater love is there than this?
