“they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’ Matthew 1:23b
God is WITH Us
Through the challenges and trials of this last year, God has made one thing abundantly clear: He is WITH us (Immanuel) through the trials, He is WITH us (Immanuel) through the challenges, He is WITH us (Immanuel) in the darkest of valleys, He is WITH us (Immanuel) regardless of our circumstances. And Immanuel is the very same promise that He gave us before He left this earth:
“surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
And that is the beauty of Jesus’ coming to earth some 2000 years ago: to have a dynamic, intimate, and meaningful relationship with His “beloved children” (1 John 3:2). Because of our faith in Christ, that’s you and that’s me!
We are so grateful for this season when we set time aside to remember why Jesus came: to set spiritual captives free, to give sight to the spiritually blind, and to give new life to the spiritually dead:
“He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free”
What a gift God has given us in Jesus Christ!!
God is Faithful
God has made Matthew 6:33 become a reality for us this year:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
As we have sought to put Him and our relationship WITH Him first and foremost, He has given us what we need: deep healing, spiritual growth, and provision for our Wycliffe ministry as well!
In our last newsletter, we shared about James’ new role with Wycliffe (supporting Bible translators around the world) and about the shortfall in the ministry budget that Wycliffe has set for us.
Thank you for praying for God’s provision in this! He is providing!!
Since we last wrote, God has reduced our monthly shortfall by almost $750! We currently only need about $560/month more (updated Jan 5) in order to be released to this new role (Lord willing in January).
If God is leading you to help fill this financial gap, please see the options below.
