Dear Team Members,

Thanksgiving Day has come and gone, but we are forever thankful for our Savior, our family, and each of you!

As we look back over 2014 we are thankful that we were able to visit our son Ben and his family in Australia, our son Ray and his family in Kansas, and our daughter Esther and her family in New York! We were also able to visit some of our extended family, and also many friends.  It was thrilling to see our newest great-grandchild Zaiden in Kansas, and newest grandson DiMaggio in New York making eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren!

We are thankful to the Lord for opening doors for both of us to volunteer in an outreach to teach English as a second language. Cherrie helps on Tuesday nights, and Charlie on Wednesday mornings. On Tuesday nights Charlie is teaching literacy which he really enjoys. There have been students from 37 Countries represented in this ministry. On Wednesday mornings Cherrie helps with correcting Bible Study papers for prisoners in a local jail. We are thankful to hear reports of prisoners whose lives are challenged and changed as a result of their study of the Word of God. We would appreciate prayers for the volunteers taking part in each of these programs, and the lives we reach out to that they will find the Peace that passes all understanding in Jesus Christ as their Savior.

We are thankful to hear of more previously unreached people groups having the Word of God in their own language, and the opportunity to understand clearly and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.

May the peace and joy of Christmas remain with you throughout the new year!

All Because of Jesus,
Charlie & Cherrie
