January Update 2016

Dear Family & Friends,
The Christmas season is often a time for gift giving as we celebrate the gift of life given to us in the birth of Jesus. And this year we enjoyed a number of gifts
given to us here in Peru.  As we gathered to celebrate the gift of Christ in us, we did so with all but two of our adult children. Seth & D’Evan were not able to make
the trip across the ocean but remained in Dakar, Senegal and watched God shower them with the gift of friends who came from the USA unexpectedly to celebrate with them.
Benjamin, Mitchell, and Anna arrived just before Christmas and packed into our jungle apartment making it festive and loud! The evidence of Jesus at work in their hearts is such
a joy. We simply gloried in being a family whether it involved putting together a puzzle, hiking a mountain waterfall, swimming in a cold, mountain pool, or drinking coffee and reflecting on life as God
has given. We are so thankful for the gift of God’s blessing on our family, and we daily ask for more of his presence in our lives.  (Read the rest of the letter here)
