Emmanuel - God is with us!

We returned to the States from the Congo at the end of November. Three days later, we were off to Texas to itinerate in churches near the Dallas area.

After the new year we will be itinerating in Washington State and California.

Christmas is here in Denver with Michelle, Jeff and little Elliot. Jeff’s parents have come in from Peoria. His two brothers also live here in Colorado so it will be a Christmas on his side of the family. We also have the great news that Michelle and Jeff are expecting a little girl in May.

For us, Christmas this year centers around the theme of “Emmanuel ... God with us”! This theme is carried on in the Great Commission when Jesus says, “I am with you to the end of the age”. It is reinforced again at Pentecost when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to inhabit the believers.

God is with us. We are not alone. What hope this gives.
