December 2017

As we look back on 2017 we have had a year of unexpected housing and medical expenses;

  • burnt out appliances,
  • a house flood,
  • Noah being struck by a car,
  • Shannon’s surgery
  • and Phil’s surgery in the UK.

Though God provided for the immediate need, these added expenses have depleted any reserve we had.

Now as we prepare for the new year, we bring these needs before the Lord asking Him to provide.

Would you prayerfully consider if God would want you to be a part of the answer, by giving to meet a need?

We rejoice in advance for His provision, as we wait and He continues to guide us, serving Him in Niger.

Great Joy!

“ Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people . . .. A Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. “ Luke 2:10, 11

As we prepare our hearts for this season of celebrating Christ’s birth, we are reminded that the news of His birth was to bring great JOY to ALL people. And that is why we are here in Niger, to share this “ Great Joy” with a few, so that “all may know” .

As we are here in a land covered in darkness, because they have yet to accept this life changing gift, we seek out the joy, the shining faces, the chorus in church sung with drums and hearts of praise. We also anticipate a time of celebration with the few Christians here in our city, letting their joy be made known.

We rejoice that you have chosen to be a part of the work going on here in Niger, whether by giving or praying, you bring us joy and you will someday be able to share in the joy of meeting those from Niger who know Him.

We celebrate the joy of restored health after a year of illness, operations and accidents.

We rejoice in knowing that God has promised to meet our every need for; physical strength, spiritual and emotional encouragement, financial needs and safety.

We are joy filled that this season gives us extra opportunities to share the good news with our local friends.

We rejoice in our boys growth and maturity; Micah completing his required high school courses early, and for Noah finishing well, his first semester back at college.

May our joy in serving continue as we approach the New Year!

From our family to you,
Merry Christmas!

Phil, Shanon, noah & Micah
