With Thanksgiving just behind us and Christmas before us what an awesome time of the year. Many of us take the opportunity to spend time with family and friends. Lets also take time to remember the reason we celebrate Christmas, the birth of God’s son, Jesus Christ.

Lynne and I have been blessed the past 12 Christmas’s to see the wonderful day from the advantage of 2 cultures. The one we have known from our earliest memories and more recently to learn and experience the customs of the warm relational culture of Mexico. Both have positive aspects and we are blessed to watch both cultures celebrate this most special of days.

This will be our first Christmas to spend Christmas day on a missions trip to some very special places and with some very special people. The plan is to be on an island in central Mexico sharing God’s love with children and the adults who live in this unique place. Isla De Mexcaltitan has a rich history which includes being a man-made island and center of the Aztec nation. The Angels, our Mexican youth team, are preparing a children’s program which includes Bible stories, Songs, Mime, Crafts, and Games. The trip is 10 days in length and involves 4 locations and 4 very different settings. Lynne and I are very excited to be a part of this special opportunity.

We have attached our latest newsletter to assist you in knowing what God is doing in San Vicente and how you can best pray for us. Without the prayers, support and encouragement we would not be serving in this awesome community. Thank you for your faithfulness to remember us in prayer.

Merry Christmas! May God richly bless you. Have a wonderful Christmas season with family and friends.
