During our family devotional time on Christmas morning, we thought about all the special holiday activities this year…
…Kaitlyn and Abby participated in Christmas parties and concerts at the conservatory of music.
…All five of us were involved in the Christmas program at our church, as well as special activities for the ladies, youth and children.
…We enjoyed a wonderful time celebrating the birth of our Savior with the SIM-Ecuador team.
…An Ecuadorian couple we met just a few months ago invited us to spend Christmas Eve with their family.

Recalling these special activities caused us to reflect on how richly God has blessed us since we arrived in Loja, Ecuador.  He has led us to be part of a great team of SIM missionaries.  He has given us opportunities to serve alongside our brothers and sisters at the Maranatha Alliance Church.  He has used believers from several different churches to encourage us and help us get settled here in Loja.  He has also brought people into our lives who need a relationship with Him.  We realize each one of these relationships is a gift from God (James 1:17).  Please pray for wisdom from above for us to make the most of every opportunity to learn from and minister to these people God has brought into our lives.
As we reflect on the blessing of relationships, we thank God for the privilege of knowing you and pray for His richest blessings upon your lives in the coming year.
