Christmas 2007 Newsletter

Warm greetings to you at this blessed Christmas time!

We are praising God for His wonderful provision for our redemption through His precious Son, the Lord Jesus Christ …     “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:   By Whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.   But God commendeth (demonstrated) His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:1,2,8

Born in a manger, but born to die on a cruel cross, to save all those who will come to Him by faith … 

“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was fore-ordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,  Who by Him do believe in God, that raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”

I Peter 1:18-21      It’s all about Him!

We are thankful for the many miles of safe travel – the Lord answered prayer in every way throughout our busy Fall schedule:  good weather, good meetings, many opportunities to present the claims of Christ, and great family-fun-times, as well!  Health-wise we have had some “speed-bumps” along the way, but His Grace is always sufficient, and we will continue to function in His strength, which He exchanges for our weaknesses – as Isaiah 40:31 encourages us …   “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run,  and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.”

Much appreciation to your faithfulness in prayer and support for this ministry!

Since this time last year, three of our grandchildren have married: Ginny’s twins, Scott and Stephen, married sisters, Jessica and Rachel.  David’s daughter, Erika, is married to Robbie Reyes. We now have one great grandchild, Benjamin (Jessica and Scott), and another one due in April (for Sarah and Mike).   Judy’s twins (our grandchildren Carson and Brady) are growing so fast and, Gramma seems to be able to handle it okay!  The only frustration is that we can not share and show all of our grandchildren with you … there’s just not enough room … but do let Barb know and she’ll be happy to update you on all the family!!!

May God’s richest blessings be your portion this joyous time of the year, and may you know His wonderful love and assurance as you faithfully serve and wait for Him …

Titus 2:11-14!

In His Love,

Barb and Ray

II Timothy 1:12
