Here’s our Christmas Newsletter!

DSC_3980 (1)Merry Christmas!

Greetings from hot, humid Zambia! We hope you all enjoyed your Fall (although, it sounds like it still is Fall for some of you with the mild weather it has been)!

Here is our end-of-the-year newsletter (click here) with the bird’s eye view of what happened in our lives this year.

In this newsletter, we cover:

  • How many miles we traveled in the month of July
  • Self-inflicted vs. Providential issues that made this a one-of-a-kind year
  • Quotes from Charlie, our thoughtful, sensitive, quick-witted firstborn
  • One surprising thing Derek learned about himself
  • And more!

Thank you so much for your prayers and support of us here in Lusaka, Zambia!!

“Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11 (ESV)
