Dear Family and Friends,
Happy New Year! Out with the old and in with the new, as they say. Wow, it’s incredible to think that another year has come and gone. And as you think about that you realize that we are one year closer to the Lord’s return. We trust that your desire is like ours – to be found faithful when He comes, always pressing forward toward the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Well, December was filled with many activities as a church family and actually felt like it flew buy. As we jump into the new year, we are looking forward to restarting our weekly Bible clubs (we always take a break during Nov. – Dec. because of the frequent rains). We are also excited about the planned Medical brigades (MMO has 1 big general clinic scheduled as well as 4 Surgical teams). I will be teaching the third module of the theology class at church, starting on Jan 22nd. But one of the most exciting things we are anticipating in 2023 is the planting of a new church! Daniel Pineda and his wife and son will be sent out of the church here to plant a new church in a nearby area. Lord willing, Daniel will be ordained and the church-plant will start in the month of May. Will you join us in prayer about these ministry opportunities?
Our prayer is that the Lord would bless you all in your local ministries and that in the year ahead we would together glorify Him.
Nate and Cori, with Mykenzie, Grant, Blake and Savanna
