As I sit at home watching the snow fall on New Year’s Eve, I can’t help but reflect on the blessings God bestowed on us in 2018. From a ministry standpoint, we have more and more Play. Story. Eat. opportunities before us. I wish I could do a better job of giving you the front row seat that I have had in seeing God at work in so many places this year.
But more than the ministry blessings, Nola and I feel so thankful and proud of our adult sons, their wives, and the grand-baby production they have done this past year! At Christmas we experienced the full reality of this as we have gone from 1 grandkid to 4 in only 18 months! And the chaos we enjoyed last week will surely increase as there are reports that two more Reeds are due to arrive in 2019 with glad and open hearts!
With that said, I’d like to play my grandpa card today and show you some of our favorite grandkid pictures of the past year. As we send this note, we want to say thank you for loving and supporting the PSE family so well this past year. I feel so blessed and pray that you experience all God has for you in 2019.
January 8th I head back to Guatemala for several weeks of making the rounds with Cesar Gonzalez. Part of that time, Ray Gurney and Rex Kelley will join us. In addition, Nola will come down for the Honduras part of the trip. In coming updates, we hope to share more.
Speaking of Cesar, he and his wife Elba are planning to be with us the whole month of March! Plans are for us to visit as many of our PSE friends as we can during that time. If you have a desire for us to schedule time in your neck of the woods, please let me and/or Bill know right away.
Thank you for your investment in 2018. We have a lot of ministry opportunities in the next few months, so your giving is truly making a difference.
May God richly bless you and your family in 2019. Our dream is that together we can see that every person in the world has a friend who loves Jesus. We look forward to hearing how God prompts you to be that friend.
Happy New Year!
