Season’s Greetings from Steve and Sandy Aholt,

“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10–12).

God sent a Saviour [Jesus] to earth and He was crucified on a cross. This is the good news that we have been sharing all these years. Some have chosen not to believe and will perish, but others believe and are saved. “The preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).

The first part of our trip went really fast. We travelled over 8,600 miles in 15 minutes. That was from Cairns to Brisbane to Los Angeles. We landed in Brisbane and changed airplanes with a three hour lay-over, departed there and crossed 18 time zones, and landed in Los Angeles 15 minutes after the time we departed, on the same day. It was actually 26 hours of travel time. Please pray as our bodies make the transition to the new time zone here in Missouri. Please note our new contact information below.

We are overwhelmed with the need for ministry here in the USA. We spent most of our first day home ministering to a girl from our Sunday school class. Her car window was smashed while in the church parking lot. The criminals took everything from her glove compartment, which gave them her home address. They went straight to her house, broke in, and most all of her valuables were taken. We helped bring about meaning to her loss. In everything give thanks! Another faith strengthening exercise? God has his way in the storms of our lives.

Lord, help us to be a shining light in dark places – wherever you lead us! Steve’s medical appointments begin in two weeks. Please pray that the cause of his right hand to be numb will be found out.

Listening for the trump and praying,
Steve and Sandy Aholt
