Dear friends in the USA and around the world,

WOW, here it is at the end of the year again! We trust it has been an encouraging year, even with all the ups and downs of daily life! We are reminded that “God of the mountains is God of the valley.” We are so thankful that our Father promises to never leave or forsake His children!

We are thankful for each of you and your love and care and Prayers for us!! God Bless you and encourage you also day by day!!!

I, (Cherrie), had a pacemaker put in on November 8th and it has been a rougher road to recovery than I expected. By the end of December, I should be much better as now there are restrictions on using my left arm and shoulder. Please continue to Pray for Charlie who has taken the heavy load of physical work on himself. I usually keep active, so do not like the restrictions, but am trying to follow the restrictions and Charlie!! On November 15th there was a follow-up in Orlando and all is coming along well. We will see the specialist again in February and then every three months for a year. My blood pressure is often low and they are still working on the high pulse which sometimes flies up to 120. So, we appreciate your continued Prayers!

As we celebrate God’s gift of His Son Jesus this month, others are celebrating the completion of the New Testament for the Tiqak people group in Papua New Guinea! Awesome news!

We rejoice at God’s free gift to all who believe in Jesus as their Savior. How thankful we are as we reflect on John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” KJV

How thankful we are for you as partners as we journey with our Savior!!!

With our Love and best wishes for an ENCOURAGING 2023,

Charlie & Cherrie
