As we close out 2020, I would ask you to take a look back. You've probably heard it said that there's 2020 vision in hindsight. As I look back, I see God's favor in so many ways. We thought the pandemic would cripple the ministry, but instead God blessed it. We thought we would be limited in our outreaches but God blessed them. We thought our finances would dry up, without any groups coming, but God blessed them!
  We never let fear grip our hearts, over covid. We kept believing that the favor of God was still with us, even when our thoughts tried to tell us a different story. Faith overcomes fear every time. Eliminating the fear is only found in faith in Jesus Christ. Many think that the vaccine will eliminate fear, or will it? Many think government handouts will eliminate financial fears, will it? The real matter is, in what, or whom do you trust? As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. 
  I remember when they first said we were all going to get $1200 from the govt back in March. Before the money even came, we decided to give that same amount to 2 families we knew would need it more than us. I believe that act of obedience opened the windows of heaven to provide for us all year, and it has. The Bible says, that God will cause people to be good to us, and He has. Unexpected,  unique and totally God moments of favor,, gave us the ability to be a blessing to orphans, orphanages, widows, and other ministries along the border.
  So even though we have had some struggles this year coping with the pandemic,  not going to church, not being with our family during the holidays, not seeing our kids and grandchildren as much, its been a great year of favor in spite of circumstances. A bucket list year in some regards, a banner year in other, and definitely a different year.
  So may The God of Heaven Bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand, may His face shine upon you and give you peace. Thank you for your prayers, partnership, and financial support. We look forward to another great year of opportunities to be a blessing to anyone that God brings across our path.
