At this time of year, as we spend more time with family and the many activities we enjoy, let us not forget the gift of Christ and the awful cost of our sin. In remembrance of the birth of Jesus our Savior, take the opportunity this Christmas to share the Good News: Jesus was born, died, and rose again -- all in accordance with God's plan!
We have continued to share this good news in Cokeville, preaching weekly on Sunday and teaching Bible study on Tuesday nights. We are looking forward to a special Christmas service on the 20th with readings concerning Christ's birth and singing many of our beloved Christmas songs. Please pray with us, as we have had several new visitors in the last few months and several previous regulars starting to come back after the COVID restrictions. Specifically, please pray that R&R and C&J will be saved.
We thank God that the Adanks are recovering from their bout with COVID and the time they were able to spend with their children over Thanksgiving. We are resuming/continuing the search for housing in the Cache Valley, and are praying that we can move by the spring of next year. Please pray with us that something suitable will open up and that we will be able to move quickly.
Looking forward to the New Year, we would covet your prayers not only for Cokeville and Cache County, but also for the process regarding James' separation from the Army and for Elizabeth's health. She has been dealing with some ongoing sinus issues for several months now, and we are praying that it will not trigger a Wegener's flare.
We are grateful for the continued prayers, encouragement, and financial support during this trying year. Thank you to those who helped provide for new hymn books and an air filter for the ministry in Cokeville! Both have been extremely helpful already. We are also thankful for the offering of many items we will need, such as chairs, from several different churches, including a dear group in Nyssa, Oregon.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and look forward to another year of serving our great Savior!
