Wanted to wish you all a wonderful Christmas. How blessed we are to be able to celebrate the birth of our Savior. As I sat in Sunday school yesterday and listened to all the prayer requests for people groups around the world who are enduring tortured and death for their belief in Christ, I realize how important it is for us to thank God for our freedom and pray earnestly for their protection and the continued growth of the Gospel in those places. How fortunate we are, and I pray that we all realize the blessings we have here in during hard times.
Our family wishes you a very Merry Christmas (or mari critmas as Katie would spell it) and a New Year full of joy!
