Coming Home for Christmas
Hello Family & Friends,
“Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!” -Psalms 100:1
“Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy! Let the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he is coming!” – Psalms 96:12-13
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, Would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” -John 14:1-3
“May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Romans 15:5-6
Emily and I will be planning on coming home for Christmas! These are some of the verses that sum up our feelings towards family, Christmas and all of you.
There is so much joy knowing that we are part of a family and even more so a family of royalty in the Kingdom of God. With God as our Father and Jesus as our King, we are adopted into a family that is way greater than we could ever imagine.
How great is our fellowship with one another on this earth as we are part of this Kingdom Family together? Thank you all for journeying with Emily and I this year – it truly means the world to us! And on this side of ministry, we can’t express our thankfulness to you enough!
We want to be the best stewards we can of our time and resources and so we have been diligently working hard to make sure every church has what they need before Christmas. Teams are excited to go out and love God’s lost children in 2022 and this wouldn’t be possible without your investment of prayer and support in our lives.
We are planning a few days in North Dakota to connect and reconnect with family and friends. If you are reading this and would like to get some coffee, a meal or simple talk, we would love that. Feel free to send us a text or email and we will try our best to make it happen.
As we go into this Christmas season remember whose you are and the blessing of being a part of the Family of God. This is only possible through Jesus and we have even more of a reason to praise God for this gift.
Our prayer for you is that this Christmas your hearts would be revived and full of the love that the Lord has for you and that this love would abound toward others!
With much love,
Andrew & Emily
