In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.John 1:1–2,14
During this Christmas season, it is with joy we remember the birth of Christ, the Word incarnate that dwelt among us. This Word of grace and salvation is eagerly heard and tenderly embraced by so many in Africa. Over this last year, it has been a blessing for us to see the Lord’s Hand at work in so many lives, countries, and people groups across this continent.
2017 has been a year of blessing for our family. We are thankful for the warm welcomes we have received while traveling, and for the many locals and missionaries who have befriended us as we start our work here in Africa. Thank you to the many families, congregations, friends who have walked with us, prayed with/for us, and encouraged us over this last year—we are grateful for your partnership in helping us tell others about salvation through Jesus.
As 2017 comes to a close, we look forward to the new year and the opportunities to share the Word of Christ with others in Africa. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
