Christmas Letter for 2015

  Great joy fills my heart this Christmas season!  This year has been amazing with much ministry happening.  Father has not sent us traveling other than our spring trip but He has sent us out to many in our own DFW area plus around the world through email and Facebook.  Texting is really not our favorite form of communication but it is becoming our most used communication. Lol  How wonderful to have ways to touch lives even though at home in the office or in the car on our way to one of the Lord’s divine special appointments.

  Thank you for your prayers this year! We have held many grieving the loss of a loved one. We have spoken a word of truth into a life struggling to believe there is any good left in our world. We read the headlines and continue our prayer effort not only for our nation and our family but for the world.  There is so much evil happening in our world but there is also a lot of good happening, love shown, people being helped and encouraged.  Do not ever think the situation you are facing is hopeless because with God ALL things are possible.

  Matthew 19:23-26 says: “Then Jesus said to His disciples, Assuredly, I say to you it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus looked at them and said to them, with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
  1 Thessalonians 5:15-19 says:” See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.”

  May the Lord grant you great peace and rest this Christmas season as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please consider that we are to celebrate Jesus every day of our lives. We are never limited to time and space when it comes to rejoicing and celebrating Jesus.

 Charley is gaining in strength and stamina daily after his surgeries and illness in 2014. We rejoice in his recovery and praise the Lord daily that his voice to love and for teaching was never silenced even in the weakest times and his excitement at seeing people come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord always bubbles forth.

 May the New Year 2016 be full of delight in all the Lord will do in your life and may you seek Jesus daily and learn from the Word of God how to walk the Life of Christ in your everyday life.

We love and appreciate all of you!!!

Charley & Karen
