Dear Family & Friends,
We are so thankful for your partnership with us. We are asking the Lord to fill you with faith, hope, and especially love (1 Cor. 13:13) this year. Thank you for believing in us, praying for us, and partnering with us. You are faithful friends.
December started out with a flurry. Michelle served as a trainer in the Leadership Matters Course (wetrainleaders.org) at Camp Nakamun (NW of Edmonton, AB). It was coooold on the outside, but warm and full of life inside the camp facilities. She was part of a multicultural team in giving leadership training to 32 leaders and pastors from many countries.
The rest of December held lots of family get togethers, friend dinners and visits, and some down time to relax. Michelle has struggled with some health issues since her December 18th chemo treatment. We would appreciate prayers for her health and wholeness, as well as wisdom for doctors to determine what the underlying issue(s) is.
January began with a fair bit of time in the office (catching up from taking time off at the end of December :0). Murray started another semester of classes at UBC Okanagan, where he is a grad student. January is a month of planning for the year, working on projects, and touching base with our teams. It has been a good month for all of those things.
Murray made a quick trip down to Mexico City to spend time with the BridgeWay North American School board. We are in search of a new director as our current director’s contract comes up at the end of June. If you are interested, you can check it out here. He also had a chance to meet with our team leaders for Mexico and Cuba.
Thank you for starting this year with us. We are heading to Winnipeg this weekend, so if you are in that area we will be speaking at Kilcona Park Alliance Church at 9:15am and 11:00am on Sunday, February 10.
