It is that time of year again, when we reflect on all of our past events and blessings of this year that is quickly coming to a close behind us. 2014, in particular, has been full of blessings, moments to remember, new challenges, much creativity, new perspectives, and great adventure; but with a bit of sadness. We will begin our review of how we personally feel blessed as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, who was the greatest gift the world has ever received.
If you would like to read more about the other purposes God has revealed to us for being here go to our blog post entitled "God Reveals His Purpose--The Lives We Are To Touch". We are honored to be helping the people showcased in that post.
We also have another post that includes an overview of the diversity in the lives of the Filipinos. It is called "The View from the "Thoughtful Spot"-Beauty and Poverty".
We will also be visiting with current and prospective supporters while raising more support so we will be able to return to the Philippines to continue our work here. We are about 80% funded currently. So, if God has laid it on your heart to help us financially for the year 2015, there is still time to get a tax deductible gift in before 2014 ends. We are about $10,500 below our annual budget. We feel blessed to be supported and prayed over by each of you. We can't do this without you.

We send you warmest wishes for 2015.
