“Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.”
I love this time of year; the celebration of our Savior’s birth. But I am thankful that we don’t just celebrate a baby who was born, but a Savior who lived, took the payment for our sins on the cross, and rose from the grave. I am grateful for the salvation that we can have through Christ, and that we have the privilege to share that with others! I trust the Lord will bless your special services and programs that share the Truth of Christmas this season!
On Friday evenings I am studying through Romans with a group of college girls. It has been fun to share with them what the Lord is teaching me, but even greater to dig deep once again in this book that is so full of doctrine and truth that we need! Please pray that the Lord would continue to use this time to grow and challenge each of us through His Word. Also, pray for a couple of unsaved girls who have been invited, that they would be able to come, and that they would come to a saving knowledge of Christ.
The Lord has also given the opportunity to start a Bible study with some of the teen girls from church. Please pray for this time of Bible study and discipleship opportunities with them. They were able to come over on Tuesday and make Christmas cookies with me. I am looking forward to how God will use this new ministry opportunity.
Please continue to be in prayer for our ICHTUS (Univeristy Ministry) Bible study. Thursday was the last study before Christmas and Three Kings Day (in January). Pray for planning for the new semester as we consider a new location, and prepare topics to be shared.
On December 21st I will be heading to Germany for twelve days to spend Christmas with BMM coworkers near Frankfurt. Please pray for safety in travel, and that even on this trip He would open doors to share the gospel. I am looking forward to getting to know some of the German ministries, and being able to pray better for them.
As we get closer to this Christmas season, I trust that you will enjoy time with those the Lord has placed in your lives. We may not all be able to be with family and friends, but we can share the best gift of all with those around us.
Thank you again for your love and faithfulness in prayer and financial support. I am beyond grateful to have you as part of my ministry in Spain!
For His Harvest,
On November 17th we welcomed our newest missionaries to Spain — Caleb and Sarah Burdett. It is a blessing to see how God is growing our team, and exciting to be part of His work here! Pray for them as they get moved into their new apartment and acclimated to life and ministry here in Spain.
I had fun exploring Salamanca with some teammates and visitors from the States.
Christmas Cookies!! I had my Bible study girls over to make and decorate sugar cookies. It was the first time for all of them. Please pray for our study (that will continue in January after the holidays), and that the Lord would give me wisdom as I work with them.
Enjoying the lights and decorations of the Christmas season!
