Greetings from Amsterdam,

“You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and ... your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” - 2 Corinthians 9:11-12, NIV

I rejoice and am thankful for the generosity and answered prayers I experienced from the Lord and many others during my 2016 furlough over the 3.5 months I was in the U.S., from late July to early November. Here’s a snapshot:

I praise the Lord for a smooth transition back to Amsterdam and for the final preparations being made for the mission trip to Kenya over Christmas.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” - Isaiah 9:6, NIV

I’d appreciate your prayers for the upcoming mission trip:

  1. Traveling mercies on December 14th and 29th.
  2. Good conversations with the 6 staff & 34 kids, life giving & empowering truths to be shared / received in each heart
  3. Eternal impact in the hearts and souls of the guardians and neighbors who attend the Christmas party
  4. That the nativity play clearly share the power and purpose of the new born King, Jesus
  5. That the playground we’ll be building will bring many hours of joy to the orphan kids and neighborhood

Praising God together with you as we celebrate "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us...", God with us ~ Emmanuel!

Forever grateful to Jesus and the gift of life here on earth and eternally,
