Greetings to you in the power of the Name of our Risen Lord! Trusting you had a wonderful Resurrection celebration! Ellen and I enjoyed a wonderful family time together. Our grandchildren enjoyed a fun egg-hunt and Ellen made a delicious turkey with all the trimming. We were just missing our second eldest daughter Hannah and her husband Dan, as they live 12 hours up north.
Warmest greetings to you in the majestic name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The sombre commemoration of our Lord's death on the cross and the celebration of His resurrection is very soon; in fact it will come before my next newsletter is sent to you, so here and now, let me say, have a wonderful Easter with your family! Parents and grandparents, take this special time to pass on to your children and children's children, your faith and the importance of what Christ has done for you. I pray you will have a great legacy of faith.
Oh the Joy the Lord brings at this special season and always!
I just returned from a very special and unique missions trip to Syria where we celebrated Christmas with over 1400 children in two cities (Homs and the coastal city of Tartus)! Unlike my other trips to Syria, where I saw such sadness, destruction and despair, on this trip I saw great joy, restoration and hope!
