It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself!

On the eve of my 62nd Christmas my heart is full of joy and excitement.  My mind is racing a hundred miles an hour as I look deep into my soul to remember many of those Christmas Days.  I think about one many years ago on Hill 37 in Vietnam, a young man sitting in a foxhole late at night and thinking about all the festivities back in the states.  Little did I know some 40+ years later I would be in the parking lot at Wal-Mart giving gifts to complete strangers. 

I’m most thankful tonight for the gift of GOD’S amazing grace that was given to me more than 35 years ago.  Little did I know that day in Gatlinburg, Tennessee what God had in store for me, but I can truly say it has been an amazing journey.

     Pam and I just began our twelfth year of service in Nicaragua.  We thank GOD for all that we have seen GOD do over the past 11 years and are very excited about what He is going to do in us and through us in 2012.  We ask that you continue to pray for us and the dear people of Nicaragua.  We will be praying for you and look forward to seeing you in Somotillo very soon.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men in whom He is well pleased.  Luke 2:14 ESV
